A crust of botryoidal Romanechite coats the crystalline barite base of this large hand specimen. The crust is generally in very good condition, though there are two areas of obvious damage. Though it shows no actual monoclinic forms, its botryoidal habit is obvious, and it has the black color and dull to submetallic luster that are commmon for the specie. Though the barite base probably has good crystal form, the blades are completely coated with Romanechite, precluding cursory study.
