This hand specimen consists of a few patches of tiny, radiating Erythrite needles that are spread out across one face of the base rock. These patches formed inside of cracks in the base rock and were exposed when it was freed. The crystals appear to be in good condition and do not exceed 2 mm in length. They are too fine to effectively study their monoclinic form, and show the classic red-violet color and a vitreous luster. All appear to be transparent and clear.
