This hand specimen is made up almost entirely of partly intergrown Halite cubes. These cubes are generally in excellent condition and measure as much as 0.9" (2.3 cm) along an edge. All have excellent cubic form, though one or two are slightly warped, and all show the "hopper effect" which is standard for Halite from this locality. Their color is a pale pink and they have a pearly luster. Though a few may show patches of transparence, they are generally translucent. The crystals rest on a more massive bed of Halite that may be mixed with an indeterminate amount of trona.
