This is a flat but well preserved dunilite crystal. Except of two small faces, the whole crystal is terminated and shows partly transparency. This peridot variety has been discovered only a few years ago and belongs to the olivine mineral group, it was named after Dunil Palitha Gunasekara. The difference is defined by the fact that it contains traces of manganese.
