Ouro Prieto, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Thumbnail, 2.9 x 1.1 x 0.9 cm
For the style, this is a relatively huge, fat, 7-gram (approx.) crystal! It glows with color, as the saturation is voluemtric so a crystal of this thickness has more intense color than thinner ones. It is perfect and complete all around save only for one very small ding in the right edge of the termination. This can be displayed with a slight tilt to minimize that visually, but its accentuated in the photos as a "worst-case" angle to show its not so much in context (though the price otherwise would be double).
