Riemvasmaak, Oranje River, South Africa
Cabinet, 12.0 x 8.4 x 8.1 cm
This dramatic specimen with multiple octohedral "peaks" has a sharp ridgeline that features 5 very GEMMY crystals with intense green color. These crystals are to 4 cm, and pop out 3-dimensionally to maximumeffect. They are all pristine and complete all around, as well. The whole cluster leaps out of a mass of matrix that is actually a single large 8 cm crystal, on which they sit. There is a small bit of contacted matrix outcrop in the lower-middle portion, but other than that the whole display face, sides, and top are pristine and fully crystallized all around which makes for both a dramatic display and a piece easy enough to cut your fingers on as they are SHARPly formed. Comes with custom carved lucite base for display.
