If you want a big Vivianite crystal, this is for you! The entire specimen is one big crystal! It shows considerable damage, but it is difficult to determine whether or not this damage occurred naturally. Anyhow, it is transparent in some spots, and translucent to opaque in others. There are many areas of striation on the crystal and it has a lovely dark green color. It has a tabular prismatic formation, and one side of it is completely obscured by host rock, where it seems that the crystal was attached. It has a basal pinacoid termination that is slightly damaged and a vitreous luster. It is certainly one of the largest individual crystals that I've seen.
