Well for all who were searching for transparent doubly terminated taaffeite crystal with hexagonal habit here it is, it’s not a huge one but a true rarity. This is the only fine crystallized specimen I can offer you. The crystal shows fine hexagonal marks on the surface and the other basal pinacoid is present as well. There are slightly lateral fracture planes but those are very tiny. Anyway such a crystal you won’t see often!
