The rhyolite host of this thumbnail specimen is littered with small Bixbyite crystals. These crystals do not exceed 0.1" (3 mm) in diameter but are in excellent condition, showing almost no damage. Their cubic form is excellent, and all have the dark gray-black color and semi-metallic luster of their species. The piece is affixed to a flat acrylic base with an adhesive putty.
