Among the massive Hematite that makes up most of the mass of this cabinet piece are some obvious crystalline formations. No complete crystals are present, however. This crystalline material has a gray color and a submetallic luster; portions of the massive material also share these traits, but most of it shows a duller gray, brown or black color and a dull, matte luster. However, a thin layer of Turgite that coats some of the massive material has given it an intense and colorful iridescence. There is no other material present on the piece.
