A few small, intersecting "sheaves" of Ludlamite blades rest on the rust-stained base of this thumbnail specimen. Each of these sheaves is made up of several heavily-intergrown, diamond-shaped, monoclinic blades. Only a few of these can be defined individually. The sheaves have a dull, pale green color with a hint of blue and a pearly luster, and are translucent. The base on which they rest appears to be calcareous and is host to many tiny, metallic botryoidal orbs that are likely made of pyrite.
