This is a heavy (163 grams), sharp crystal with stunning luster and unusually equant form. The thin striations that run laterally along the large faces give it depth and dimensionality, though it is overall a thin crystal relative to its width in front. It is complete on the top and right/upper terminations and complete on most of the downward pointing left termination as well. The small flower of crystallized albite is a contrast in the center is a fine accent.
