Another crystal with unusually glassy faces, weighing 27 grams. This one has a rich red-orange color, and some inclusions but none jarring to the eye as they aren't near the surface to mar the color. It is remarkably symmetric, as if carved, even more so than most. It is completely pristine save one tiny ding on a back face.
