WOW! A fabulous 8 cm gwindel and a regular quartz crystal are sitting right in the centre of a quartz crystal gruop. All crystals show incredible luster, truly the very best one can look for, and amazing clarity. The colour is a very appealing medium smokey hue, not dark and not light, very beautiful and eye candy!
