- Pohla, Schwarzenberg District, Erzgebirge, Saxony, Germany
- Miniature, 3.9 x 3.8 x 2.5 cm
This superb miniature features a pair of gorgeous translucent to gemmy, amber barytes, one measuring 4 cm and the other 3.4 cm in length with the smaller one being doubly-terminated. These two beauties are then connected by a bridge of two smaller and gemmier doubly terminated crystals! All four crystals have excellent luster and there are a few other small crystals of note along with a trace of matrix and a tiny yellow fluorite crystal to make the piece that much more aesthetic and interesting. Ex. Joachim Hennrich collection as noted on the Wendel Minerals label. Just a stunning miniature of a rare old European classic, so much more gemmy and sculptural than most!
