Six Halite cubest rest on the base of this cabinet piece. These crystals reach 0.9" (2.2 cm) and are in moderately good condition, showing some fresh damage; one crystal has been all but completely broken off of the base. Their cubic form is likewise moderately good and shows healed breakage and growth irregularities. All have the standard pale pink coloration and pearly luster of Halite from this locality, and all are translucent to dimly transparent. They rest on a bed of compact, fibrous burkeite that forms a botryoidal crust. This crust covers a dull yellow base material which is likely made of trona.
