Interesting little specimen. It's so well tumbled and polished that it feels like plastic. Nonetheless, nice composite and worth the risk paid.
Nice piece, but much nicer in the pictures. It does not show as well in person, and it is not rich fluorescent blue as the images suggest. The photos look enhanced comparatively.
