This small piece of Iolite has what might actually be some discernable crystal form, though it is rather heavily worn and was likely damaged and then healed over or worn down. Its pleochroic color shows the standard deep violet, pale blue-violet and pale beige colors, and its luster is waxy. The piece is transparent and quite clear, and is affixed inside a thumbnail box with a removable putty.
