Here we have a brown, doubly terminated crystal of the clinozoisite - epidote series. (It is difficult to distinguished between these species by visual clues alone.) The gemmy transparency is much greater than revealed in the photos. The surfaces and quite glassy. The specimen has a slight bend die to several natural break/heal events. Missing about half of one termination not shown in the last photo, but otherwise quite good condition. A fine example for this species from this locality.
