Gemmy and complete single Peridot crystal with fine lime green color. This crystal is from a parcel I bought many years ago. The parcel stood out to me as all the crystals had this great bright green color as compared to most available which had a more olive green color. Good transparency and with smooth, flat crystal faces as compared to most which are rounded in form. A great little crystal.
