A few intergrown Goethite crusts make up this hand specimen. These crusts do not exceed 0.3" (8 mm) in thickness. The topmost of these crusts serves as the base for scores of tiny stalactitic Goethite formations that extend from it. These formations do not exceed 0.5" (1.3 cm) in length and appear to be in very good condition, showing no severe damage, if any. These formations are basically colored black with patches of very dark gray, are opaque, and have a positively dull, matte luster. The crust off of which they grow has a rusty-brown-to-black coloration and is also opaque and dull in luster. A few small clusters of water-worn selenites rest in hollows and crevices on the piece.
