Two Brookite crystals rest on the crystalline quartz base of this specimen. Both are in excellent condition, showing no damage. The larger of these crystals has dimensions of 0.5 x 0.4 x 0.2" (1.3 x 1.0 x 0.5 cm), and the smaller measures 0.3 x 0.3 x 0.2" (8 x 8 x 4 mm). Their cube-based form is rather warped but normal for pieces from this locality- two opposing corners on each crystal did not form, producing 2 large, opposing and heavly-patterned faces. Both have the obligatory black color and a luster that is either waxy or adamantine, depending on the face viewed. The base consists of a few intergrown quartz crystals that have a dull gray color and a very dull, waxy luster.
