This cluster of autunite crystals is a nearly random intergrowth of flat yellow crystals. Several sections are organized as books of thin crystals, and all have a subtle curvature. Their color is varied, predominately a greenish-yellow around the edges, and more of a yellowish-green towards the centers of the clusters. They have a somewhat pearly luster and are opaque. Close examination shows that the stepped appearance of the crystals is actually just layers of crystal growth, and also that most of the crystals show some damage.
