This one was hard to photograph as the incomparable luster was so reflective as to cause light flares. Looking down on the piece you see the terminations of the bundled acicular masses and those have matt luster. Turn the specimen to view the sides of the sheafs and you are nearly blinded by the reflection (OK, a slight exaggeration, but you get the point). If I collected anything besides calcites I'd keep this one for myself. Simply stunning. Also ex-Ruggiero Collection.
