Well perched sharp and lustrous Babingtonite crystals on contrasting green Prehnite. The finds of these incredible Babingtonites in Meigu redefined this specie and are considered by far the worlds best. The clear form and bright black luster gives this specimen a strong presence. Esthetic and in fine condition there are a few clear Quartz crystals scattered about adding a nice sparkle as well. Damage free and esthetic.
