A single cube-shaped Boleite crystal makes up this specimen. It is in nearly pristine condition, showing almost no visible damage, and has excellent form, with well-defined edges, clean faces, and tiny secondary faces that truncate each corner. Its azur-blue color is so dark as to be nearly opaque in normal light, and it has the standard pearly luster. There is no host rock, and it is affixed inside a plastic specimen box with a hot glue.
