This is a single crystal of danburite that shows some evidence of double termination. There is a radiating, cruciform-shaped cluster of iron-stained quartz crystals attached to the rear of this specimen. The lower half of the danburite crystal shows small solution cavities. There is a broken chip of danburite on the front of this specimen, where another crystal had grown, and was broken away. This is the only damage seen on this specimen. This piece is glued to a clear acrylic base.
