This is a huge single, very robust crystal measuring over an inch thick! It GLOWS when backlit but even with moderate lighting is quite translucent, and a shockingly uniform cherry red color. As it sits horizontally, the crystal is complete on front and side terminations, slightly contacted in back and to the lower-right termination's underbelly (this does not show). As stood vertically, I love the dramatic display of color and the change in form of the termination as it goes up (those are natural faces, not cleaves!), though it then has some contact on the back-right side not facing the viewer at this angle.
