This little Goshenite crystal is in excellent condition, showing no visible human-induced damage. Likewise, its hexagonal prismatic form is excellent, with well-defined edges and generally clean prism faces that possess the standard vitreous luster. The basal termination face is heavily patterned and has a duller, pearly luster. The crystal is generally colorless and transparent, and is moderately clear- the upper half of its length is quite clear, but its lower half is very cloudy and only dimly clear or even translucent at its base. A small amount of albite is attached at the base of the crystal, but there is no other base or host rock present.
