This piece consists of a polished slab of milky quartz that holds a single cross-section of an Elbaite crystal. The cross-secrtion is incomplete, but enough is present so that its rounded triangular shape is visible. Being a piece of watermelon tourmaline, it consists of a dark green "shell" of Elbaite that surrounds a red "core". Being polished, the slab shows a bright luster.
