A single, large Corundum crystal comprises this specimen. Though broken and repaired, it has an excellent appearance. Its trigonal form is nearly perfect and its habit six-sided and pyramidal, tapering very steeply to a point. Though a small surface at its tip is uneven, it appears to be a natural flaw or very old, healed damage. There is no host rock present, and the crystal is affixed to a flat acrylic base with a removable putty.
