A large, showy, very 3-dimensional plate of lustrous pastel colored crystals from a major find at Naica in the early 2000s (05-06). It has a lot of display quality and size impact for the price. They seldom came this big, in this quality. The crystals are gemmy enough that you can look into them and through 2-3 cm or more of crystal to see more crystals and a matrix underneath! The shapes are cubic, but modified as is typical for this locality (cubes modified by octahedral faces = cuboctahedral). The color is a rich pastel green, not pale at all in person.
