MBB98CD2: Isolated crystal of Elbaite (rubellite variety) with very defined crystal shapes and excellent terminal faces. Between transparent and translucent, it is shiny and implanted in a translucent Quartz crystal with leafy Albite crystals at the base.
Its rear termination is recrystallized, similar to the other small crystal implanted in Quartz.
A beauty that reminds us of how creative Nature can be.
