Just too good to be true! Especially the one with the "baby" crystal attached to its top - what a beauty!

Thanks Tobi!
These small crystals are sometime overlooked by dealers trying to go for the big sale.
The "big sale" wasn't that big at the end and I walked out with a lot of 4 small crystals as a bonus.
