An extremely aesthetic and eye-catching specimen with great red-orange color, excellent sharpness and superb luster. Some of the crystals light up with brilliant color when backlit. The main focal point of the specimen is the combination of a layered composite crystal which is growing on top of a "stop sign"-shaped crystal on gossan matrix. The "stop sign" habit is formed when a square tabular tetragonal crystal is modified evenly on the corners at 45 degrees. Virtually undamaged as far as the main crystals are concerned, and that "stop sign" habit is rare from the world famous Red Cloud Mine. This piece is not from any contemporary finds as it was collected in 1967 by Leigh Price on the 150 Level of the mine. That particular discovery produced some of the finest gem "window pane" habit crystals ever seen from the Red Cloud. Valued for quality, uniqueness and the fact that it's over 50 years old.
