Many small Peridot crystals rest in the pale brown, fibrous host rock of this specimen. A few of these crystals are obviously broken, but several, including the largest one, are intact. This largest crystal has visible dimensions of 0.4 x 0.2 x 0.2" (1.0 x 0.6 x 0.5 cm), and the other crystals do not tend to exceed 0.1" (3 mm) along any axis. None of these have a good orthorhombic prismatic form, though some have definite crystal faces. Their color is the classic yellow-green and their luster is bright and vitreous. All appear to be transparent and clear.
