Good coverage of fine bladed, magenta-pink Erythrite in sprays and clusters to 4mm covering matrix.

This certainly isn't the most aesethic specimen and it could use a good cleaning, but it's still a good piece.

We're currently waiting for a new ultrasonic cleaner to arrive and at the buyers request we'd be happy to hold shipping this until it can get a good bath.
