This particular Peridot crystal has excellent crystal form, with well-defined edges and clean sides that have enabled me to find an extra treat within! Among the few veil-like inclusions and internal fractures, I actually saw what appear to be dark needles of rutile scattered in some areas. I suppose they could be some other type of mineral, such as cacoxenite, or even tourmaline, but they are a bit small for testing! Needless to say, the faces of this crystal are quite clear, showing a vitreous luster, and the color is the standard yellow-green of all Peridot. This particular crystal is one of the more defined ones of our selection.
