A single, incomplete Peridot crystal makes up this small thumbnail specimen. It is in moderate to good condition, showing only a small amount of damage besides the breakage plane at its base, and has good though slightly rounded orthorhombic prismatic form. It was intergrown with at least two other crystals- one of these was separated, and the other is broken and mostly incomplete. The crystal has the classic yellow-green coloration of Peridot and a pearly luster, and is transparent and quite clear, though it does contain at least one large internal fracture. There is no host rock of any sort present.
