This large thumbnail specimen is one that I find extremely attractive. It has an extremely warped hexagonal form that is similar to that of the goshenite specimen GOS-1. However, it is intact and shows almost no evidence of human-induced damage. It seems that every face has noticeable curvature, and there is not a straight edge present on the piece. It is almost as if a completely formless shard of a broken crystal underwent massive healing! The specimen has a very subtle, pale pink coloration and a vitreous luster, and is transparent and very clear, though there are a few internal flaws visible though the largest faces. The abnormal form of this specimen is a trait that I find most attractive.
