A single, very large triplite crystal that shows off like a red windowpane, fully translucent with even only a small amount of lighting. The crystal is terminated, although its irregular shape was constrained by growth in a thin vein pocket - which makes these distinct from all others of the species I have yet seen. nearly a floater, almost complete all around except a minor contact. There are substantial, large gem areas to this crystal that could be cut - significant in such a rare and colorful species. One small region of the crystal looks to be approximately 10 x 8 x 8 mm thick and exceptionally gemmy, which would cut out a gem of very high value for this species. BETTER IN PERSON.
