Small Cabinet, 7.4 x 6.4 x 4.5 cm
White Queen Mine, San Diego County, California, USA
A very interesting, floater crystal that is unusually trigonal in overall appearance! This is a classic White Queen color, a rich, intense pink hue like a normally ripe (but not over-ripe) grapefruit shade. It is 362 grams. The crystal is complete all around, all faces complate. It displays nicely on a shelf, showcasing the front "window" in which you can look into the depths of the crystal. The other sides, as is typical for this mine, are frosted and not so gemmy, which only serves to focus the eye and the light right into the core through the front. Unusual, fine crystals from this classic US locality!
