A translucent to transparent, light pink morganite crystal which has suffered extensive, natural etching by the same pocket solutions which deposited the mineral initially. The result is a complex surface, smooth in some spots and rough in others. Overall the effect is quite pleasing. Displays very nicely at several angles without needing a stand. Free of damage; a fine example of for the species and locality.
