This excellent little thumbnail specimen consists of at least 3 partly intergrown native Antimony "crystals". It is most likely, however, that these are merely massive formations that were broken and cleaved some time prior to their mining. The largest of these is much larger than the other two, and makes up the bulk of the specimen, with dimensions of 1.6 x 0.9 x 0.7" (4.1 x 2.3 x 1.8 cm). Though it does show noticeable damage, none of it is severe. It has a more crystalline appearance than the smaller formations, with well-defined edges and striated but clean faces. All have the bright silvery-white coloration and bright metallic luster that are characteristics of this element. There is no host rock present.
