The color is pleochroic and changes from a dark green to a green/brown depending upon the angle of view. The specimen is in very good condition with no appreciable damage. However, there are a few small chips on the edges of the termination with onlyone visible with a 10x loupe. The specimen was mounted on a thick round acrylic base with the date 7-91 written on the bottom. The base will also be shipped with the specimen.
