This is a prismatic crystal of yellow, transparent scapolite. It has a somewhat distorted and unusual appearance, in that the octahedral cross section is incomplete (one face is tiny, another is missing) showing just six sides, and the roof termination is offset - none of the roof edges line up with a face edge. There are barely perceptible striations on the crystal's sides, and the termination has a strong growth pattern which hints of striations and results in a dull luster (the sides are vitreous). There are both black and orange inclusions. There is no significant damage, other than to the base where the crystal was separated from its host rock.
