This small hand specimen consists of 3 intersecting Zincite crystals. These crystals are in very good condition, showing minor damage. The largest serves as the base for the other two, and has dimensions of 1.6 x 0.2 x 0.2" (4.2 x 0.6 x 0.5 cm). All of them have excellent hexagonal prismatic form, though one has an interesting offshoot from its termination. The two smaller crystals have a yellow color with a hint of green, and the larger crystal shares that color at one end; however, it changes color along its length to a darker orange-brown at the other end. All have the standard adamantine luster and are transparent and very clear. There is no base or host rock, of course.
