A rather large, clam shell-shaped gypsum crystal, transparent to opaque, rendered yellow to mostly brown by unidentified inclusions. The cleaved base shows the core is mostly transparent, and provide a very nice display base to boot. Very minor edge cleaves -- typical with gypsum's readily-developed cleavage -- but otherwise no damage.  Modest yellow-brown fluorescence under both longwave and shortwave ultraviolet.
