A stunning sharp crystal of GEM quality hambergite with an unusually sharp, textbook termination you just do not often see in the species. Put in the hand, I do not think anybody would guess what this is - it is just too good for the species. To our way of thinking, this gem crystal is one of the finest thumbnail specimens in the collection. Video is a pale comparison to how it looks in person, as the camera has trouble focusing.
