This is a single, fat, elongated crystal from this new pocket. It is nicely perched on just a small shard of matrix that serves to stand it up vertically with flair. 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. The photo makes it look foreshortened in order to show the termination well. In person, it is rather more vertical in appearance.
