Stunning crystal, of total gem quality, and a relatively large cut stone cut from this unusual and fiery orange clinohumite that is widely considered to be the worlds best of species. This crystal actually is pretty good on its own complete on top termination and just a nick in the bottom-left. It is very gemmy and bright, just like the matching gem!
