A crust of crystalline Halite rests on the base of this display piece. These crystals measure up to 0.7" (1.9 cm) along an edge and are in excellent condition, showing very little damage. All have excellent cubic form and noticeable hoppering on their faces. Their color is a creamy white with a faint pink tinge and their luster is the standard pearly. All are translucent to dimly transparent. They rest on a bed of what is likely thenardite but might be bloedite that has good crystal form but shows rather heavy damage.
