A colorless, translucent to water-clear, tabular gypsum crystal, with a typically slanted termination. Interesting surface growth features due to stepped growth in some areas. The slanted termination is complete and nicely striated, but a few small bumps and scratches are noted. (Recall that on the Mohs scale, gypsum has a hardness of 2.)
