A Goethite crust that coats most of a dull, pale brown host rock makes up this small thumbnail specimen. The formation of the crust is not as complex as that of the previous specimen, but it still shows a definite reniform habit, made up of intergrown nodules. The piece is generally in very good condition, as fresh damage is not evident. The Goethite has the standard moderately deep silvery-gray coloration and dull metallic luster of its species, but is coated with some type of material that gives it a colorful and beautiful iridescence. The dominating colors are red, yellow, and green. The specimen is hot-glued into a cubic plastic specimen box for display.
