Many tiny clusters of radiating Strengite crystals rest on the rusty base rock of this hand specimen. These crystals do not exceed 1 or 2 mm in length, and though many of them are crushed or decayed, there are a few clusters that are intact and in excellent condition. Their form is difficult to study with a loupe due to their size, but appears to be good. All have a pale to moderate pink coloration and a pearly-to-waxy luster, and are at least translucent.
