Phenakites are highly sought-after, and this little gem should definitely be in the hunt. Aside from being small, it is perfect in every way: clear and ultra-sharp, with a wonderful complex and complete crystal form. It is complete all around save the bottom face which is a flattish contact plane. If you didn't know it was a Phenakite, you would swear it was a killer Herkimer Diamond.
