A single, tiny Spinel crystal rests in the quartz matrix of this hand specimen. This crystal does not exceed 0.2" (4 mm) in diameter and is in excellent condition, showing no damage. Its octahedral form is nearly perfect, with sharp edges and very clean faces. It has a deep red color and a somewhat dull vitreous luster, and is translucent, containing many internal fractures.
