About the item

, , Due Diligence is a term bandied about rather casually, but sometimes you can see its effects "in the flesh" so to speak. Imagine if you will, opening up a 'pocket' lined with the kind of delicate and frangible crystals that you see here. Imagine trying to remove such things in a hot, humid and dark hole, with bats flitting around - without trashing any of the golden postage stamps that festoon the walls. That's the task that faced the Swoboda/Van Scriver team responsible for extracting the matrix piece you're looking at, along with its relatives. That it exists - , is a miracle in itself. You want to see what Due Diligence looks like? Look no further. There is a custom acrylic base.Bought from Brad Van Scriver [RHC #5380, acquired 1989][Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]HID07601242017
