6.8 x 6 x 5 CM (cabinet)
price: $975

Stunning red Rubellite crystals with delicate "castellated" hollow terminations perched on a flowerlike rosette of Cleavlandite.

A classic form for Chrysoberyl showing an inverted V twin well exposed on matrix. From the finds in the 90's at Colatina, this is a sharp crystal in fine condition.
