This small specimen consists of a single doubly-terminated hexagonal Sapphire crystal. It is in excellent condition, showing no visible damage, and has a slightly warped but still discernable hexagonal prismatic form, with well-defined edges and relatively clean but striated faces that possess a rather dull, pearly-to-waxy luster. It is generally colorless though slightly rust-stained, and is transparent and moderately clear, containing several inclusions. There is no host rock present.
