A 30-gram specimen that is among the few crystals saved from cutting with such elongate crystal form, and a normal looking termination atop, this is a total GEM in person! Sadly, there is a thumbn-print-sized conchoidal cleave out of the back of the termination, but nonetheless it looks great from the front and so is now a reduced price, as well. The crystal itself is absolutely colorless, a pure colorlessness that adds to the gemminess of the specimen in person (and makes it extremely hard to photograph because light refracts off all the hundreds of facets and faces here, bouncing back and forth through the crystal and making the camera unable to capture its true clarity). MUCH BETTER In PERSON
