Scores of tiny Dundasite orbs make up most of the mass of this large thumbnail piece. These orbs do not exceed 2 mm in diameter and are generally in very good condition. All are composed of crystals that are far too small to discern even with a loupe, and together they form a complex botryoidal formation. Their color is white, though some areas appear to be rust-stained, and their luster is dull and silky at best. Accompanying the orbs are sevarl small clusters of small, dark orange-brown crocoite crystals, which likely contribute to the "rust-staining" of the Dundasite.
