Red/reddish sylvine bearing inclusions of extremely rare borate - ruitenbergite. I am not sure which microcrystals or inclusions fit to ruitenbergite, but I assume they are not the greenish ones but some tiny colourless ones. However, the child photo shows the greenish part of the specimen with some tiny colourless crystals likely on a(nother?) greenish species, plus some yellow ones, which may fit (awaiting informations from the dealer).
