Ex. Herb Obodda
Lovely spray of translucent to gemmy Aquas, perched beautifully on the side of a Feldspar crystal. The Aquas have good luster, very nice terminations, and a delicate light blue color. The tips are gemmy! Overall, a terrific miniature with excellent matrix-bound aesthetics unusual in a specimen of miniature size.
