This is an outstanding and IMPORTANT example of this classic replacement and should be considered one of the most important pieces in the collection. It has good aesthetics and no damage, excellent pedigree, and unusually large crystals to 3 cm, which place it among the best such specimens to be available on the market. Many such specimens are only partially replaced but this one shows complete replacement!
