A spray of somewhat compact, radiating Autunite blades comprises this thumbnail specmien. It is in very good condition, showing only a few minor scuff marks on its surfaces. The tetragonal blades that make up the spray are packed rather tightly together, but their form is reasonably good, with somewhat rounded but definable edges and relatively clean faces that possess a pearly luster. They are generally a yellow color, but substantial portions of the spray have a dark, green-black coloration that is likely due to pseudomorphing or decomposition. There is no host rock, and the specimen is hot-glued into a square plastic specimen box.
