This is a stunning rare Danburite gem from Russia.
Danburite is not a well-known mineral but is growing in popularity. With crystals similar to topaz, danburite offers a unique opportunity for a collector who likes perfectly transparent crystal clusters. People who admire clear quartz will like the different look of danburite. Its diamond-shaped cross-section and wedge like termination is a contrast to quartz’s hexagonal prisms and pyramidal terminations.
