Several clusters of tiny, radiating Annabergite blades rest in a crevice in the host rock of this specimen. These blades do not exceed 0.1" (3 mm) in length but are in excellent condition due to their protective surroundings. Though their size makes them difficult to study, their monoclinic form is excellent. All have the grass-green color and bright pearly luster that are standard for the species, and though individual crystals are transparent, the clusters are essentially translucent. Their base is made up of limonite that is coated with a thick layer of white, crystalline calcite.
