The matrix of this specimen shows numerous tiny crystal faces of the mineral eosphorite. These crystals are generally transparent, and brownish in color. This is a reasonable specimen for this locality, even if it is somewhat aesthetically challenged. The specimen shows no notable damage, although the base of the specimen has a coating of glue where it was once mounted on a stand. Eosphorite is named for the Greek words meaning dawn-bearing.
