Likley the most unusual Cornetite specimen that I have seen, this small hand piece consists of a botryoidal Cornetite crust that coats a rough tenorite base. The Cornetite crust is damaged in a few places, missing bits of the crust. It has the standard deep aqua-blue coloration of its specie and a pearly luster, and exhibits the nodular, grape-like form of all botryoidal minerals. The material is translucent.
