Comment: The gem to lead the list into the 2020ies is, by pure chance, no faking this'n'that, a perfect symbol of hope: Away with the mist, away the mud! Bring us clear views, smooth sailing amidst wonderful colors, surprising but never dreadful. See this giant drop of clean water turn to white rock and then throwing show after show, from tender sunrise to firework, from clubbing laser beams to deep-sea-microbes jiggling in the beam. Have you seen such? In our humble collection, and to my humbler memory, only this crystal did a jump from such lucid nothingness right into the limelight of color. Whether you take this as an omen for better times (have we all not deserved them... from the actually poor-poor, to the very poor, to the poor rich), or as proof of God's existence in nature (in case you needed more), entrust this gem with the power for change, forget your new-year's resolution, simply go and do what good can be done to the best of your abilities. Then, relax your shoulders, be happy, worry not, knowing that YOU have played your part well, and that you may leave the rest to whoever has made this gem as a proof for the possibility of miracles and change. May be understood as a colorchanging, or color-from-white, gem. magic.
