This complex thumbnail piece consists of several rounded and warped Diamond octahedrons that have intergrown to form a cluster. The largest of these has a diameter of 0.3" (7 mm) and shows the only damage that I can see. All have a pale gray color and the standard adamantine luster, and are translucent- the largest shows a few spots of dim transparence. The crystals formed together in such a way that a tiny, natural hole extends through the cluster- it is unfortunately too small to put a chain through it. There is no host rock present, of course.
