- Ex. Ernie Schlichter
A choice, V-shaped cluster of two absolutely gemmy crystals, making for a unique and beautiful thumbnail. While others are singles, this is a double, and stands out in any exhibit! This came from the well-known East Coast thumbnail specialist Ernie Schlicter. Ernie was Shields Flynn's friend and thumbnail mentor/competitor and passed on 300 of his favorite core specimens to Shields for this collection.
