This is an exceeding aesthetic specimen of acicular Rockcrystal, the so-called Nadelquarz (Needle-Quartz), so typical for the Val Bedretto of Ticino canton in Switzerland. The crystals are extremely well developed, razor sharp and mirror bright. So far I can see the piece is pristine all around. This is a highly aesthetic specimen in splendid condition and the good areas of the source are still exploited. Such great pieces are still history and consequently desired as well.
