This hand specimen consists of several hexagonal prismatic Weloganite crystalsAt least 7 small Weloganite crystals rest in a hollow in the dull, pale gray host rock of this small hand specimen. None of them have dimensions that exceed 0.2" (5 mm), but they are generally in very good condition- only one of the crystals is damaged, and it has been broken off near its base. All have slighty-warped but relatively well-defined hexagonal prismatic form, with well-defined edges and disjointed and striated but clean faces that possess a flat, matte luster. Their color is a uniform gray-white, and all are completely opaque. There are several long, thin bladed crystals accompanying the Weloganites- they have a milky white coloration and are translucent, but I cannot identify them. I would guess that they might possibly be made of artinite.
