A deep green, opaque, somewhat lustrous, and oddly-formed Alaskan epidote. The odd form is probably due to growth interference (minor muscovite is present); the specimen does not appear to be etched. Most probably from classic Green Monster Mountain locality. Minor, scattered microchipping is seen under magnification, otherwise the specimen is complete all around (a floater) and undamaged.
