Dimensions: 7 cm x 6 cm x 5 cm

I obtained this specimen in 2014 from Rocko's Minerals at the NY/NJ Show in Edison, NJ. This dealer had one flat of these specimens and I picked out the most expensive one. I have not seen anything like it since then at any dealer carrying Indian minerals. All the specimens I saw had similar crystal form and no matrix.
