Apart from one broken crystal and a few damaged ones near the specimen's edge, this Descloizite piece is in great condition. The crystals have a dark brown color, a pearly to vitreous luster, and are dimly translucent. They reach maximum dimensions of 1 x 0.5 x 0.1"(2.5 x 1.8 x 0.3 mm), and compressed into flowery aggregates of spearhead-shaped blades. They rest on a crust that is made up of tiny, intergrown Descloizites that are compacted together, and there is a thin layer of a sandy, light brown substance coating the underside of the crust. It is an impressive little specimen, with rather large crystals.
