Fine quality Tremolite crystal, about as good as they get. The color is top notch, which is good, but what makes this one ven better than others of similar color is that the termination faces slopes down in front (compared to others which are more flat across the top) allowing the termination face to be readily viewed when displayed. The crystal is complete and undamaged.
