Though incomplete, this little Euclase crystal shows excellent form and good clarity. It is a blue-white color with patches of pale blue, and looks like half of a thick, square tabular crystal. The back of the specimen shows that it was broken off of either the crystal itself or a host rock of some sort. It has a vitreous luster and is transparent, although some cloudy inclusions cause interference. A lone, clear quartz crystal protrudes from the right side of the specimen, growing near and almost parallel to one of its edges. There is no host rock, and the specimen is attached to a foam base that fits into a plastic specimen box.
