We sometimes are able to offer these fine and gemmy natural Burmese crystals, rarely however do we find one of this size and, in particular, this color. Most of the Burmese crystal are the classic red hue, we almost never see such a pleasant purple - and then, almost never this transparent and gemmy. The faces are naturally sharp and have not been polished. Moreover, the crystal is well formed and undamaged with no attachment points or chips. Finally, such near perfection is rare is stones of this size - much more typical are well formed crystals in the 1/4 carat range. Just a great piece and difficult to replace.
