Pink Danburite Twin from Charcas, San Luis Potosi, Mexico. Here's a vary nice, large sized, classic pink danburite crystal pair from the famous Charcas site. The main crystal has a handsome chisel head termination and is actually somewhat gemmy, with reasonably good translucency of about 50%. A smaller danburite attaches at the base of the main crystal and terminates in the opposite direction.  At a time when many of the specimens from Charcas are coming out completely white and opaque, and fairly beaten up, it's nice to get one with good clarity, minimal damage, and with some delightful light pink coloration.
