Great terminated crystals of 2.5 an 1 cm in size. The smaller one, with the violet top, has a cluster of quartz crystals nicely perched on one side of the crystal. Such loose crystals are not do frequent on the market. These 2 are from my personal collection of elbaites found in more than 20 years of field trips. Very esthetic.
