Several tiny Phosgenite crystals rest in small hollows in the dark gray matrix of this small thumbnail piece. These crystals do not exceed 2 mm along any axis and are generally in very good condition. All have a tetragonal crystal form that is difficult to study due to the surrounding matrix, but is likely very good. All have a milky-white color and a bright, nearly adamantine luster and are almost transparent. A few of the hollows are dusted with a white powder which is likely a lead oxide.
