The first feature you notice on this crystal is the incredible luster. Light reflects off every growth striation as if it originates there. The central crystal is dark, but some light reveals a gemmy green band about 2/3 of the way up. The termination is lilac/pink. The side car crystals each have differing amounts of that lovely lavender pink, which grade down to clear, then green with some backlight. No damage. Really good!
