This small Heliodor crystal is in excellent condition, showing no damage, and has a rather unusual hexagonal form- it is flattened so much along one plane as to appear almost bladed or tabular! Its color is a pale golden-yellow, and it has the standard vitreous luster. It is also transparent and, except for right at its base, almost perfectly clear. There is no base or host rock present, and it is affixed inside a thumbnail box with a removable putty.
