The upper 6 mm, just below the termination, is very gemmy. Most of this gemmy area is composed of layers of various shades of an attractive green. There is a thin layer, up to 1 mm in thickness, just below the surface of the termination, which is light pink. There is a central core of the crystal which is dark green and opaque. Just below the edges of the sides, approximately 1 mm in thickness, there is more of the gemmy green material similar to that near the termination. The termination is well formed with a smooth central face and 3 beveled faces at the corners.

Condition: Good

Flaws: There are some very small chips on the edges of the termination. Near one corner of the termination, there is a white area which looks like a fractured area and but appears to be a bit white Albite which is present on the surface.
