This cluster is dominated by a crystal measuring 0.5"(1.3 cm) long and 0.3"(8 mm) in diameter, with perfect complex tetragonal prismatic form. The other crystals in the cluster are smaller in both dimensions but also exhibit excellent form. The only damage that I see affects two crystals, and both are partially healed. Their luster is vitreous, and enough transparence is evident to see intense internal fracturing that destroys the crystals' clarity. Their colors are very attractive; each crystal has a pink-violet color along its prism faces, and each termination is a greenish-yellow color. The cluster is affixed to a square acrylic base with a removable putty.
