This tiny specimen consists of two intergrown pseudocubic Boleite crystals, one of which is much larger than the other. Both are in excellent condition, showing no human-induced damage. The larger cube makes up the dimensions of the entire specimen, while the smaller cube is mostly intergrown and would, if complete, measure 2mm in all dimensions. They show excellent form and have well-defined edges and clean faces that possess a pearly-to-waxy luster. Their blue color is so deep that even under a bright halogen light, one can only see a dim translucence along the crystals' edges. There is no host rock present on this piece.
