17.6 x 16.0 x 8.6 cm. This is a large plate, remarkably free of any major damage despite its exposure in the pocket! In person, this is like a splaying fan, with crystals radiating out from the bottom-center. The larger crystals are 13, 10 and 10 cm long. Despite all those freestanding tips pointing to the side sand out to the viewer here, none are damaged! Not even a ding is on any termination and on the whole piece only one tiny ding is on one small edge leading to a termination, only. From the personal collection of mine owner Ron Coleman.
