This specimen, though not the most lustrous, is particularly impressive, consisting of two very large crystals with a bit of matrix. Less than a year ago, specimens like this would have cost over $6,000 (and still do in most cases) but I was able to get this piece as part of a larger group of specimens, and can pass it on at a good price.
The size and arrangement of the damage-free ilvaite crystals, together with the sheet-like bits of greenish-brown quartz matrix make this specimen quite appealing, particularly when compared to the masses of lone or damaged crystals.
