The matrix rock of this specimen is host to several tiny, but excellent crystals of tsumebite. They are a little too small to identify the monoclinic form, but they exhibit perfect faces when viewed under a loupe. Small vugs on either side of the specimen contain druses of quartz crystals, one heavily stained with iron, and one not. This is really a pleasure to view with a loupe. There is no damage to this specimen.
