This cabinet specimen consists of a pale brown rock that is partly covered with hundreds of heavily-intergrown Torbernite crystals on one face. These crystals are generally in poor condition, as nearly all of them are broken and incomplete, and some are noticeably crushed. Even so, there is a lot of Torbernite on the piece, and those crystals that are intact show excellent tetragonal tabular form. All have the standard deep, grass-green coloration and pearly luster, and all are transparent and dimly-to-moderately clear, depending on their intergrowth.
