This half of a bisected Diamond crystal is in fair condition, showing a small amount of chipping damage that occurred during the cutting process. I thought that it might possibly be the match for specimen # DIA-82, but close examination shows several differences. The natural surfaces show a cubo-octohedral form that is rounded through stepped gradation and the classic adamantine luster. The cut surface shows several slightly curved saw marks and a moderately good polish, revealing the transparent and fractured interior- this is rather odd, as its natural surface is completely translucent. The piece has a dull, gray-brown coloration.
