In person, this specimen is extremely gemmy all through the center. In fact, even though it is very thick and chunky (2 cm thick), you can read clearly right through it. It is complete and terminated, with a little mineral attachment on top. Very light lilac color. Weighs 70 grams. Ex. Charles Hansen Collection.
