This thumbnail specimen consists of a single Chrysoberyl prism. It is in excellent condition, showing only a small amount of human-induced damage, and shows a very good orthorhombic prismatic form that has well-defined edges and heavily striated but otherwise clean faces that possess a bright vitreous luster. Its color is a rather dull yellow with a strong hint of green, and it is partly transparent, as there is a substantial cloudy inclusion located just under its termination surfaces. There is no host rock present.
