While the unique blue color of vivianite is apparent on this specimen, it has darkened to nearly black, especially on the exposed top. Some protected areas on the bottom have an appealing crystal shape and still appear transparent. The crystal is quite fragile, and tiny flakes of vivianite come off during handling, although they don't appear to significantly affect the overall appearance of the specimen. The specimen has several natural faces (not just cleavage planes), and is relatively nice even though it shows some damage.
