This specimen consists of a small grain of native Platinum. It does not appear to be damaged in any way, though magnification is needed to examine it closely. There do appear to be some rounded hollows in the piece, but these might be caused by chromite crystals that were since removed. The Platinum has a rather dark gray color and a dull metallic luster, though magnification shows tiny patches of brigter color and luster on its surface. There is no host rock of any sort present.
