This is a fine single crystal of prase quartz from Primorskiy Kray.  The sharp termination is very glassy, with smooth, lustrous faces.  The sides of the crystal slant inward, and are covered with tiny parallel growth crystals which also catch the light.  The dark green color is caused by inclusions of hedenbergite, although I wonder if this is actinolite, like the ones from Greece.
