A gemmy, attractive, glassy Epidote blade with fine chevron phantoms. The gemminess and luster is as good as you could wish for, and the Epidote has a pleasant, brownish-green color. The termination is partially contacted ever so slightly on the upper rear, but it is recessed so not noticeable when seen straight on from the face. Because it is slender, it lights up in a case, far better than most traditionally dark Knappenwald Epidote crystals tend to do.
