This moldavite specimen has a shape I'll call a "smashed teardrop". It is quite flat and roughly oval, although one long edge is relatively broad, while the other side tapers to nearly a knife edge. It is a lovely green, and is nearly transparent - only the slightest degree of translucency is visible. At first glance, I thought it had a couple of minor dark inclusions, but they turned out to be reflections of surface features on the other side. This specimen, while not completely symmetrical, is undamaged.
