A very odd cluster of apparently worn Dolomite makes up the bulk of this small hand specimen. Between the wear and the intergrowth, it is difficult to determine definite crystals there are definite crystalline faces and edges visible, though. None of the material is damaged. The Dolomite has a greenish-yellow color and a dull pearly-to-waxy luster, and is translucent. A small amount of broken, crystalline quartz is attached to the formation.
