This small thumbnail specimen consists of at least 10 intergrown crystals of Wardite that are attached to a small amount of dark gray host rock. They are generally in excellent condition, showing little human-induced damage, and do not exceed 0.4" (1.0 cm) in any dimension. All have the standard "warped octahedral" form that this tetragonal mineral usually exhibits, and they have well-defined edges and clean faces that show a bright, pearly-to-vitreous luster. Their color is a very pale blue-green and they are translucent but cloudy and heavily internally-fractured.
