Toenail, 3.1 x 2.6 x 2.6 cm
Darra-i-Pech, Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan
A large, intensely colored cluster of two intergrown crystals. This piece has very dramatic form, intense color near tops for the find, and is complete and well formed all around 360 degrees, except only for two very shallow, tiny dings on the tip - which I assure you do not detract visually at all as they are hard to spot and have to be seen at just the right angle to show at all, but i'd be remiss in not saying they were there. Still, a very impactful, dramatic display specimen I rate among the better pieces (if not the most expensive) in this pocket.
