A beautiful group of tabular goshenite crystals. Very hard to photograph! The crystals are sharp, glassy and lustrous with great modification faces. The large pinacoid faces are slightly etched, with complex patterns (also lustrous). At the centre of the group is a rosette of delicate muscovite crystals. In excellent condition, no damage. This is a super goshenite specimen.
