There is one partial face on this small Bytownite specimen that may be part of a natural crystal face. It is flat, relatively clean, and has a dull waxy luster. All other surfaces are curved and show conchoidal patterns. They also have a much brighter, pearly-to-vitreous luster. These conchoidal faces give one a clear view into the material, which is impressively clear- only one or two internal fractures are visible, and there are no inclusions. It has the standard pale yellow coloration of Bytownite from this locality. There is no base or host rock present. I think that such a piece would be ideal for faceting.
