This hand specimen consists of a single large Obsidian "Apache Tear" nodule that is embedded in a pearlite matrix. The Obsidian nodule has visible dimansions of 1.9 x 1.5 x.1.1" (4.8 x 3.8 x 2.8 cm), and other than two very small chips, is undamaged. It has a black coloration, though its surfaces are coated with a very thin, milky-white layer of perlite, and a pearly luster. At is present size, it is essentailly opaque in normal light. The perlite matrix in which it rests has a color that ranges from pale-gray to milky-white and a pearly luster. A few of its surfaces appear to have been cut and partly sanded, but much of it is rough.
