Here you get a big mushroom twin made up of two main crystals and a smaller one at the lower side. You can easily recognize by the counting the 3 schorl crystals, which have been the seed crystals and the starting point for all rubellite crystals. Also you can spot another more botryoidale shaped species with a deeper red coloration. Big piece from the Khat Che mine.
