A lustrous, deeply purple crystal of 9.5 x 3.5 x 3 cm in size, is perched dramatically in a natural bowl of matrix on this rare matrix Goboboseb specimen. No repairs, no damage, and great color and sharpness, combined with the super glassy luster on the surface, make this a display-worthy specimen. Such crystals of this size, unrepaired, on matrix, are rare. If you want it more freestanding and displayed vertically with the tip free, since it is complete alla round at the top, you could also simply clip off part of that matrix as an easy trim, exposing the tip fully. However, since this is a really rare "aesthetic" to see the crystal contrasted to the matrix, i liked it this way, more natural and showing context.
