Yes, some heavy, but i find some truly heavy with more than 200 crystals, however only some crystals are beautiful.

Hi! Peter, yes there are some beautiful plates, others are very interesting because they have another generation of crystals with complicated habits, gwindels and double ended and inclusions that give a green color, but are in the back of the plates and sometimes on the amethyst.

Time is for renew
