A significant miniature for the locality, with HUGE and extremely robust crystals: Diverging, fan shaped, crystal sprays, to a shocking 3 cm in length, of highly lustrous, magenta colored erythrite is aesthetically emplaced on matrix.. Small, glassy and gemmy, colorless quartz crystals, to 7 mm in length, are present in the matrix. Each of the two major clusters of parallel blades is well over 1 cm thick, putting these crystals on this piece near the top of the size scale for the species and locale.
