Exquisite, absolutely gem-clear hexagonal crystal of Beryl sitting on two books of mica. The luster is perfect, and the beveled edges make the aesthetics even better. It is dazzling in its simplicity and clarity. As with some others here, I challenge you to find a better thumbnail-sized example that isn't just small, but rather has some pizzazz and association to make it a quality piece period.
