A glassy, terminated tourmaline pencil, which when viewed along the long axis, shows a triangular structure with convex sides. The color appears black in reflected light, but in transmitted light it appears green and transparent for the entire length (better than my lousy photos suggest). Produces a fine glassy note when dropped (gently) on a hard surface. No damage.
