I like this moissanite specimen. It stands on its own quite nicely, has a cavity (and two exposed areas that were cavities until the adjacent mineral was removed), and the cavity is nearly round, and my first thought was that it was a drill hole, but then I noticed the excellent crystals growing into the cavity. These areas expose nearly perfect silicon carbide crystals that are larger than on the rest of the specimen, although in general the tiny crystals on the base yield to larger and larger ones towards the top. The colors are excellent here, too, with the violet, purple, and blue hues at the base yielding to greens, blues, and even nearly yellow irridescent hues near the top.
