This thumbnail specimen consists of several small Descloizite crystals that are partly intergrown with a much larger crystal. The large crystal makes up almost all of the mass and volume of the piece, and is in good condition, showing light damage. Its orthorhombic bladed form is quite warped but still defined, and it has a dark brown color and a rather odd, dull, silky luster, though small areas show an adamantine brightness. It is affixed inside a plastic specimen box.
