What a gem! This gem-clear, absolutely gorgeous crystal is the perfect thumbnail ....a fat gem perched on a natural display pedestal. The crystal is perfect and complete all around save for a TINY ding on the back of the termination (see lower-right photo). Its there, but in context, it isn't distracting except on very close inspection and I think the piece is still in the top caliber level. These crystals Charlie had put away back in the 1960s after a good trade with dealer A.L. McGuiness GLOW with color and are, for combination of color and clarity, the finest I have seen for sale.
