The quartz host rock of this thumbnail specimen is permeated by several veins of massive Antimony. Though massive, the metal is not without form, as most of its visible surfaces have been subjected to cleavage. These surfaces show straight, sharp edges and smooth faces that possess a bright metallic luster. All of the Antimony has a bright silvery-gray coloration. The surrounding quartz host rock is colorless in some areas, but is stained a dark gray where it comes into contact with the Antimony, and is rust-stained in one area.
