2.5" Kammererite Crystals on Matrix - Turkey

 

This is a beautiful cluster of magenta colored kammererite crystals on a rock matrix, collected from the Kop Krom Mine in Turkey. Most of the crystals are in great condition, however there are some that have damaged terminations. The base of the rock has been cut, allowing for aesthetic presentation without the need of a stand.
