This anapaite specimen has a rather dull appearance due to a thin overgrowth of brown and white minerals, giving it a somewhat dirty appearance. The color is the usual green, and there remain a few bits of the original clamshell in which it formed. A loupe reveals the transparency of some of the crystals, and further that many of the crystals are in excellent condition, showing fine triclinic form. There are many clusters of anapaite leaves, and other crystals that are distinct stubby blades.
