This is a specimen of the mineral serpentine, variety chrysotile. It is extremely fibrous in nature. The reflection of light from the face of this specimen is quite pleasing. In fact, when chrysotile is pseudomorphed by quartz, it is known as the popular "tiger eye". There is no noticable damage to this specimen. Chrysotile fibers are the closest thing to actual crystals that serpentine ever achieves.
