The biggest crystal has gas inclusions and a tiny moving bubble near its termination base. There is a somewhat dull outer coating, along with  numerous minute (?)hematite spots. 

One of the lesser crystals has a few minute nicks to its termination point (barely visible with the naked eye), otherwise pressure and contact marks near the base of the specimen. It displays well on a flat surface, all-round.
