This is crystalization, for more info have a look here
Yup, I could see that one shattering if you dropped it...
This is very nice coin. I like the rendering of Philip II of Macedon on the obverse as well as the well centered reverse.

Handle the coin with care, store safely, and it will give you enjoyment for years to come.
