This crystal ranks very highly with the large crystal
on the previous page. It has amazing deep blue color, and very intricate surface patterns, again similar to the complex
hoppered faces from the deep red Brazilian spessartites. The color shift is very strong. And the size of the crystal
is huge even for gem rough at the locale, at over 11-mm across and almost 3.5 carats! Again, there is a little
native earth that could be removed in an ultrasonic bath, but I think it adds character. This crystal is absolutely
first class, a mineralogical masterpiece!
