- Loliondo, near Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
A 35 gram crystal that is complete, and has top color and "glows" when backlit. It has some internal fibrous inclusions, but no jarring black spots. It is complete all around except only 3 slight contacts or damage spots on back or side faces - very trivial really (you cannot see them in the photo or from the front!), but enough that I can justify reducing the price for perfection on the few that are, to a much lower price point for this one despite the fact it LOOKS the same from the front and sides anyhow.
