This specimen consists of a single, small hexagonal prismatic Heliodor crystal. The crystal is in excellent condition, showing no damage, and has excellent form, with well-defined edges and faces that are smooth, but not quite clean. All of the prism and most of the secondary termination faces all seem to have a thin coating of some material on them that reduces their luster, or were subjected to growing conditions that affected them. The primary, basal termination face and three of the secondary faces have a bright, vitreouls luster, though. The crystal's color is a rather deep yellow for its size and thickness, and it is transparent and very clear. Such a crystal might be fashioned into a very pretty and unusual pendant.
