My buying period for Chinese material was between 2002-2006. This piece drew my attention due to its amazing balance and architecture. On a knob coated with stubby opaque quartz crystals formed “poker chip” style crystals, which are prismatic crystals with pinacoid terminations. In the center these poker chips compounded themselves into a larger 6.5cm pseudo scalenohedron. Fluorescent under LW.
