This large thumbnail specimen consists of a profusion of intergrown quartz, siderite, and Lazulite crystals. The Lazulite crystals do not exceed 0.3" (8 mm) in any dimension and are generally in good condition, though some of them are obviously damaged. They have the standard deep blue color and vitreous luster of crystals from this locality, and are only dimly translucent in some areas, due to the depth of their color. The siderites are extremely small and mostly covered over by the quartz crystals, which show excellent form and are transparent and very clear.
