Two halves of a geode with a shale skin constitute this specimen. Their insides are densely coated with many round clusters made up of hundreds of radiating Aragonite needles. These crystals are white-to-cream in color, have a vitreous luster, and do not exceed 3 mm in length. Also scattered about the interior of each half are dozens of tiny botryoidal aggregates of black kutnahorite crystals. The crystals in the formations are microscopic, and one would likely need at least 50x magnification to examine them individually. The aggregates, in general, have a black color, are opaque, and have a very shiny silky luster. They generally rest at the bases of the clusters that surround them. The geode halves that they rest in are affixed inside a plastic specimen box. It's a neat, compact specimen that will fit in a small space.
