A rare gem species, grandidierite is seldom seen in crystalline form. From the amazing finds of 2018, this is one of the sharpest terminated examples of the species that also has a good transparency to it: a deep steel-blue single crystal with exceptional sharp termination! As a thumbnail specimen, this crystal is among the top examples known to myself and friends, for this combination of qualities. it comes from what is surely the best "pocket" or zone discovery of the species, ever. ex Kyle Kevorkian to Houran in exchange.
