This small thumbnail specimen consists of a portion of a broken Emerald crystal. Though showing large breakage surfaces at both ends, it has noticeable crystal form with well-defined prism faces. Its color is a slightly pale emerald green and it has a pearly to vitreous luster on its prism faces and a vitreous luster on its breakage surfaces. Though showing some transparence, it is very heavily internally fractured, so that clarity is spoiled beyond 1 mm below the surface. I have affixed it inside a domed plastic specimen box for display.
