Cabinet, 14.4 x 12.2 x 8.8 cm
Coleman Mine, near Jessieville, Garland County, Arkansas, USA

These "fingers" sweep up from a thin plate of matrix, 9 cm tall in many spots, forming a hedge of gemmy water-clear quartz points. This kind of formation is often found heavily damaged and is hard to extract. However, this piece shows NO DAMAGE whatsoever, not a ding on a tip or crystal. It is contacted only about the bottom periphery, but even then, the rising crystals are all clean and terminated and there are no distracting breaks to the eye on the front display view. From a first glance, this looks like a common enough specimen, I suppose...but I cannot recall the last time I saw one piece this size, of this style, in such pristine condition. It is NOT common at all.
