This is a robust, complete, floater crystal of hambergite showing unusually good terminations (usually they are long and tapered, or etched) that are broad, lustrous, and complete. The crystal is doubly-terminated, though the bottom termination is not as well formed as the top. It is a very, very sharp example of new finds here which have really redefined the quality of a terminated hambergite we could expect to own in a collection, bringing this rarity up to a display-level it has not often been seen in before. This is from the Gene Meieran Collection, to me in exchange recently.
