I used the flashlight of my mobile on it, and with an angle, I could see the exact same pattern which is shown at the bottom of the link's page you gave.
is it possible I could see it without the magnifier, Barbra?...

and i am saying, that what you saw was scratches or just dust on the outer surface. :wink:
possibly even reflection from the dust on the flashlight itself.
try wash this "glass" with water,and than wipe it and tell me if you still see that pattern.

Dor, the pattern is there....whether or not it can be seen with the unaided eye is a function of the width of the fiber optic threads and I guess, how good your eyes are.
I would definitely need magnification.

Well, I can clearly see it and no magnification is needed here;
Fiber Optic Glass - IT IS.

Brother - An educated guess from a picture alone shows more than knowledge;
it shows many many years of practical experience.
it's like Indiana Jones once said: "If you want to become a real archeologist, You need to get out of the library". (a parable)
next time, before buying, why not consulting?
(I'm sure the master would love to help when she can)

I'm not sure but I can tell you that for the amount that I spent on that Sapphire,
THIS WOULD BE ONE EXPENSIVE TERRARIUM! #-o :lol:
