This small thumbnail specimen consists of a single, loose Rhodizite crystal. This crystal is in fair condition, showing considerable damage, and has a warped, incomplete dodecahedral form. Its pale, yellow-green color and dull pearly luster are standard for its species, and it is translucent and cloudy. The crystal is affixed to a flat, acrylic base with a removable putty.
