14.2 x 10.8 x 9.5 cm. A spectacular cluster featuring a dominating, fat, razor-sharp crystal the size of a beer can in the midst of accessory crystals. It is 12 x 7 x 6, perfectly vertical and complete all around, with NO DAMAGE whatsoever! There is one small natural growth indentation of 2 mm on one edge, but otherwise the surfaces are razor sharp and can slice a finger. The second crystal on the left side is likewise pristine, and these are fat and clear...so they are clearer in person than they appear in the photo. From the personal collection of mine owner Ron Coleman.
