This Halite specimen appears to consist of a stalactitic formation that is made up of scores, if not hundreds, of cubic crystals. These crystals range in diameter from less than 0.1" (3 mm) to nearly 1.4" (3.6 cm) and are in excellent condition, showing very little human-induced damage. Their edges are very well-defined, and their faces are smooth, possessing little of the "hopper effect" that is common with Halite from California, in the U.S. All of them are milky-white in color and translucent to dimly transparent, and have a pearly luster. The specimen is made up entirely of Halite- there is no host rock present.
