6.6 x 4.5 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $700
Pre Holiday 2017

A very bright color rounded knob that is also covered with rounded crystals of rich magenta-purple Co Calcite. The back and botton are the attachment points where this was broken from the bedrock but the display surface (front, top and sides) is in perfect condition and very impressive. The individual crystals have a bright wet-look luster and many are also two toned making a very eyecatching display. This locale has now been flooded and we do not expect to see the produced again. A future classic with the unique color that makes the best of these so desirable. Choice.

Post Tucson 2015

Large deep purple-red crystals of Rosellite in a vug decorated with fine Cobaltoan Calcites as accents. Well composed and showy, the biggest crystals are 1.4 CM which is huge for the specie. In perfect condition inside the vug, outside a thin rim of chipping is noted where this was removed. Very strong display impact for the size.
