This is a nearly colorless sapphire crystal. It has a dull luster which hides its interior except in several evenly spaced bands that allow light to pass. Near the base of the crystal, another very small sapphire crystal, golden in color, is attached, and this one shows signs of damage (its tip is missing, for one). The larger crystal has a hexagonal cross section, and tapers towards the tip, although it is rather crooked, as well. When held to a bright light, the transparent bands appear dark, giving this crystal a striped appearance.
