Many hexagonal prismatic Endlichite (an arsenic-rich variety of Vanadinite) cryastals are intergrown to make up the bulk of this large thumbnail specimen. These crystals are in moderately good condition, as many of them are broken or incomplete, and the largest of these has visible dimensions of 1.0 x 0.6 x 0.5" (2.5 x 1.5 x 1.3 cm) and shows good form, though it is heavily intergrown and a bit disseminated. Its edges are fairly well-defined and its faces are marked with heavy growth patterns, but are clean and possess a bright, subadamantine luster. All have the moderately pale brown coloration that is common for this variety, and are thoroughly opaque. There is a small amount of a weathered, cream-colored host rock on the underside of the specimen.
