This very small specimen consists of a single Boleite cube. It is in good condition, showing only moderate damage, and has excellent form, with well-defined edges and clean faces. It has the classic deep blue color of its species and a dull waxy luster, and is only dimly translucent under bright halogen light. There is no host rock present, and it is affixed to a small piece of wood which is attached to the bottom of a plastic specimen box.
