12.21 cm x 7.70 cm x 5.70 cm

This is very interesting material that has been hitting the market in the last year. It was discovered some years back along one of Indonesia's coastal areas, but their government would not allow it collected and exported. Then last year, they changed their minds.

I call this the "Dragons Tail". This beautiful specimen is multi colored, the deep purple, and pinkish purple, green and ivory. The colors other than purple are believed to have been created by what were living organisms that were growing on the coral. There is coral present at the base of this specimen. Velvet look to the botryoidal crystals up to 5.5 mm give this specimen and amazing look.
