A single Peridot crystal comprises this specimen. It is in excellent condition, showing no appreciable damage, and has reasonably good orthorhombic prismatic form- it looks as if 2 Peridot crystals may have grown into each other. Its yellow-green color is rather pale at its termination, but deepens somewhat towards its base, and it is transparent and moderately clear, containing some cloudy and veil-like inclusions and some other flaws. Its luster is greasy, and it is loose- there is no host material of any sort present.
