Another small Endlichite specimen, this piece consists of at least 10 intergrown crystals of the arsenic-rich variety of Vanadinite. Though there is some visible damage, the crystals are generally in good condition. They do not exceed 1" (2.5 cm) in length or 0.5" (1.3 cm) in diameter and have good though generally incomplete hexagonal prismatic form, with well-defined edges and clean prism and basal termination faces that possess a bright metallic-adamantine luster. All have the standard pale gray-brown coloration of this mineral. There is a thin crust of white calcite that extends along one edge of the specimen- it has an almost reniform habit.
