This Russian heliodor contains multiple stubby crystals and a spray of muscovite. While there are several areas showing damage (some fracture near the base, and some abrasion of a couple of edges and a point), this is still a quite aesthetic specimen. Examination with a loupe shows that some of the inclusions are additional muscovite crystals that were trapped during the growth of the heliodor crystal.
