The brown-gray host rock of this hand specimen is partly coated with a crust of intergrown Torbernite blades. These blades generally do not exceed 0.1" (3 mm) and are in moderately good condition, showing considerable damage where they are well exposed. All have excellent tetragonal tabular form, a grass-green color and a pearly luster. They are transparent and dimly to moderately clear where applicable.
