Detailed Description

A beautiful doubly-terminated sapphire crystal with small crystals in association. The main crystal is outstanding, with sharp, well-defined faces. Near the thicker of the terminations are additional crystal faces – really nice. The narrow termination tapers to almost a point. In excellent condition, no damage except one small additional crystal on the back is incomplete and there is a small contact beside it, none of which is seen as displayed. This is a great sapphire specimen.
