This Halite crust is made up of scores of intergrown crystals that are in very good condition and reach diameters of 0.7" (1.9 cm). All have excellent cubic form and clearly show the hopper effect that is commonly found in Halite crystals. All have a faint pink coloration and a pearly luster, and all are translucent to dimly transparent. They rest on what appears to be a bed of white, crystalline thenardite or bloedite. These crystals are unusually large and well formed, and a few even rest on some halite crystals on the other side of the specimen.
