An intense green coating of tiny uvarovite crystals covers one surface of this specimen. They are large enough to sparkle beautifully, but too small to examine without a loupe. The color is an excellent deep green, and the individual crystals are transparent. The lighter looking areas are composed of smaller crystals, and there are several areas of contact damage, where the crevice was too narrow and the sides touched, resulting in a flattened area with incomplete crystals. Still, the specimen is very pretty.
