Hold this specimen in the sun or a bright light and you will not believe the dazzling display of twinkling lights that flash off the uvarovite crystals. The color is a rich emerald green, as befits a species whose color comes from inclusions of chromium in the crystal structure, just like emeralds. The crystals on this piece are about 1 mm in size, and they form a rich coating on the dark gray matrix that nearly covers the surface.
