A typical light green, translucent 'prase' quartz crystal. 'Prase' refers to the color, which is caused by inclusions of hedenbergite, actinolite, or similar green, fibrous species. The termination is contacted (probably grew across a pocket, or broke and healed) but not damaged. Very typical for the species and locality. Displays well on its acrylic support stand, from which it can easily be removed if desired.
