This is a rare Epidote crystal from the Wing Maw mine, those crystals showing a very different termination from the common ones, and also displaying striation at the top. This piece has a regular fine terminated site and an irregular one where it was connected to the former matrix. A thin layer at the top is partly transparent and disclosing brownish green pleochroism.
