WOW! What a superb French gwindel! The crystal features perfect textbook shape and a great twist. It is fully clear from top to bottom and the luster is great. The piece is in excellent condition all around, just tiny little bruising is present on a few tips, nothing of significance. The height of th this gwindel is way above average level, it is truly special and stand out the crowd!


A590 - Epidote - 14500€
Knappenwand, Untersulzbachtal, Pinzgau, Salzburg, Austria
Size: 18.1 x 6.2 x 3.9 cm
 
 
 

WOW! Whan an awesome epidote rocket, rising up from a cluster group of byssolite and epidote crystals. This is indeed one of the tallest crystals I have ever seen from this famous locality, it measures incredible 17.3 cm from top to bottom! The crystal crossing on the lower right side is thick and sturdy, it measures 2,7 cm in width and features a sharp and brilliant termination. The size is indeed shocking and impressive, and the luster is great all around as well. It is actually bright like a mirror, the best I heve seen from this famous classic locality. This piece comes from one of the last great pockets found in 2008/2009 mining season. The locality has produced nothing even close since then. Unfortunately, the miners are quite sure that the Knappenwand is most likely exploited and production will come to an end soon. This is an excellet opportunity to get one of the best and tallest epidote specimens ever fond at this classic Alpine locality. Repaired 10x, all lock fit, no parts missing though, and no damage on any of the terminations.
