Most of the pyrochlore crystals on this specimen are damaged, but that just reveals the color and transparency of the thinner sections. The pyrochlore is brown with orange highlights, and has a vitreous luster. The host rock appears to be composed of both calcite and a feldspar of some kind, with hundreds of tiny pyrochlore crystals included.
