Two separate Apophyllite clusters rest on the basalt base of this specimen. Both consist of crystals that measaure up to 0.5" (1.3 cm) along an edge and are mostly damaged or broken. Where intact, their tetragonal prismatic form is good, showing well-defined edges and clean faces, some of which are caused by cleavage. Their color is pale green, their luster is pearly-to-vitreous and all are transparent but only dimly clear due to inclusions and internal fracturing. They are accompanied by a few broken stilbites and rest on a crust of what is likely more, decayed stilbite that coats the base rock.
