Loliondo, near Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
Thumbnail, 2.7 x 2.5 x 1.0 cm
A frontal shard, meaning all the faces you see but cleaved in back, off of a large crystal of high quality. This piece stands vertically and shows off intense color and gemminess, due to its thin nature. For the colo rimpact and size from the front, a relative bargain if that is the primary interest!
