Photo can create stunning landscapes. So this group of elbaites causes a great thrill. However, the picture width does not exceed 15 mm. But the illusion is remarkable.

Love it - definitely one of my favorites! ...all because one of the guys in the Pala Int'l room at the Westward Look took the time to explain how it got it's name.
