The rhyolite host of this specimen holds a single Bixbyite cube that is in excellent condition and has near-perfect form. It does not measure more than 0.2" (5 mm) along an edge and has the classic gray-black color and submetallic luster of the species. The rhyolite base on which it rests also holds several tiny hematite blades- though these blades are misshapen, they are generally undamaged. The piece is affixed to an octagonal acrylic base with an adhesive putty.
