Description/Interesting Notes:

A very rare and unusual "Star of David" diamond crystal twin from this historic locale!!! Not only does this specimen exhibit the extremely rare, prized "Star of David" six-rayed star twin habit, it also shows incredible yellow-green color as well!!! In person the yellow-green color is much more pronounced and impressive!!! The crystal consists of opposing, intergrown macle twins that converge to create the incredible and highly sought after six-rayed star habit!!! The crystal is complete and undamaged with brilliant, adamantine luster!!! The crystal shows an even, gemmy translucence and has intense, richly saturated, fancy yellow green color!!! This is an AMAZING example of this prized gem species!!! Truly incredible, old time material - and from a classic locality as well!!! The pics hardly do it justice!!! Must be seen in person to be fully appreciated!!! This specimen is from the collection of Tony Nikischer!!! We just acquired the 6000+ specimen PERSONAL collection of Tony Nikischer and there are going to be some very exciting minerals to come
