        I would describe them as a facetted, colorless, transparent 
jewel, resembling glass, but with a higher degree of light refraction.  
That's for the visual description.  For the tactile description, I would 
describe it as a facetted, cone-shaped stone with sharp edges.  The fact 
that the pointed end of the cone is usually the botton is 
inconsequential, unless the stone is prised from it's jewelry setting.  
I have no idea as to what kind of sound they make when dropped on a hard 
surface, whether ringing, clicking, or thumping in nature, but I would 
assume they clicked rather than rang.
