A single, clear Quartz crystal comprises this specimen. It is in excellent condition, showing only slight damage on a few edges and at its termination tip, and it has excellent hexagonal prismatic form. All edges are well-defined, and all faces are generally clean. However, the faces are rather odd in the fact that most of them appear to be slightly "frosted" and not perfectly clear. They also possess only slight patterning, which is usually obvious and intense on crystals from this locality. Thus, its luster is only pearly, and one does not have a perfect view to its interior, which contains only a few small internal fractures and several very small inclusions. There is no host rock present.
