This is a single, fat crystal from this new pocket. It exemplifies the qualities of this find: translucency, shimmering surface luster, and unusual tapering form. It has a pastel lemon-yellow color. It is hard to explain or convey in pictures, but there is a certain ethereal quality to these specimens that makes the crystals look "soft" and unusual compared to most other large crystalline species. And, this is a rather large example for this species. Unlike some others here, it seems to have a slight brown tinge to it on a few edges, from perhaps iron staining.
