This is from a new find of peridots at this now-classic locality which has produced the world's best crystals of the species by far. The color is just a REALLY JUICY LIMEY-GREEN COLOR the likes of which you seldom see. The crystal is very gemmy and translucent to transparent throughout, as well, so it is better in person than the photos indicate. I know these have been comin gout for years now, but THIS type is different - just a bit more vibrant in color, overall, and with great terminations. This was one of the few miniatures I picked up for a mix of form and color quality. There are a few very insignificant dings, and one contact on the left side. It is otherwise complete all around.
