Occasionally one comes across a specimen that clearly names itself. I was initially attracted to the concentration of rich brown scalenes, many doubly terminated. The fact that it looked like it was taking off to find its dinner had me sold. Aptly now named “The Eagle” this specimen has many hues of brown within the dense clusters. The bottom front was evidently a contact point but the extraction left it clean and unobtrusive. There are some scattered crystals missing terminations, but, as with all birds of prey, minor scarring only enhances the appearance. Clearly, I am taken by this piece. It will be a display specimen in the “rockreation” room until someone decides to love it as much as I do.
