This small, partly cut shale slab serves as a base for several Cornetite clusters. These clusters are in excellent condition and reach lengths of 0.5" (1.2 cm). The crystals therein show fair to poor orthorhombic form due to restricted growth and intense intergrowth with each other. All have a deep green-blue coloration and a vitreous luster, and are likely translucent. The clusters are accompanied by a small patch of essentially microcrystalline pseudomalachite.
