Miniature, 3.6 x 2.9 x 2.6 cm

Ex. Desmond Sacco
INTENSE red color saturation makes these beautiful inesites, from a famous mid-1980s series of pockets, still rank among the best of species. This is a compact cluster of several spherical aggregates of radiating crystals, with top color intensity, and overall great aesthetics as a miniature. It was probably found circa 1984-1986. ex Desmond Sacco Collection
