A ridiculously sharp, textbook crystal of this rare cobalt species, showing a higher-than-usual degree of luster. Also, many of these are older, from the 1800s, and often have dings and major damages. This is a nearly pristine, complete floater, among the best condition we have seen, and with original luster so well preserved that it makes most others look dull. It is a competitive quality, not merely a representative quality.
