|Rock crystals from Austria are much more rare than from Switzerland and very difficult to obtain. The whole area of Hohe Tauern Mts belong to the National Park. So all material which is on the market (and that´s not a big number) came from old finds or from a fist full of Strahlers, who have a permit for field collecting. This partcular group consists of water-clear, nearly flawless crystals. They are sharp terminated and all faces show mirror luster and very attractive texture. No significant damages to report, bottom was extracted from the rock.
