AF656 - Pezzottaite $ 800 Sakavalana Mine, Ambatovita, Fianarantsoa Prov., Madagascar thumbnail - 1 x 1 x 0.8 cm Translucent to transparent Pezzottaite crystal with rich raspberry color. From a parcel I purchased when these were first discovered, I kept this one for its prismatic crystal form compared to others which were the more typical flat, wafer-like form. The flat, bevelled termination face (1.2cm on longest dimension) looks like a faceted jewel.
