This small thumbnail specimen consists of 3 partly intergrown Peridot crystals. These crystals are in excellent condition, showing no fresh damage. The largest has dimensions of 0.9 x 0.4 x 0.3" (2.3 x 1.0 x 0.8 cm), and like the other two has a slightly rounded but reasonably good orthorhombic prismatic form, with somewhat worn edges and clean faces. All have the standard yellowish-green coloration and a moderate to bright pearly luster on their faces. They are transaprent but only dimly to moderately clear due to the presence of many veil-like inclusions. There is a small amount of a dull, white material present at their bases.
