This is a single, translucent, dark blue, benitoite crystal with fine luster. It has large gemmy areas. Given the weight, its a certainty that you could cut stones from this and make a buck (probably worth $1500-2000 cut up) but I prefer to leave it as an unusually fine loose gem crystal! It has EXCEPTIONAL luster and rich blue color!
