63 x 39 x 33 mm
The main crystal (in fact two twinned crystals) is 21mm tall and 18mm from front to left hand side. The faces of this completely free-standing (also backside is free, only bottom of the crystal is on the rock) show a very attractive texture. The crystal shows a - for Mashamba - very good (more intense; compared to common material) pink color, also the contrast to very light matrix is really eye-catching and the aesthetics is on highest level. The specimen looks great in various positions, no significant damages to report.
