Collected by local people. 2012. TOP SHELL !!! I see no flaws. Limited population of Ifaty, always distorted or overcast. Only a few are of good quality and extremely hard to get a GEM like this one with on top a fantastic color and super shiny. Bozetti described these specimens because the whole population is like this.
