A large cluster of heavily intergrown Whiteite crystals makes up the bulk of this specimen. Though they may have started out as separate crystals, they are aligned with each other and can be regarded as a single unit. Its dimensions make up nearly that of the entire specimen, and it is in good condition, though there is visible damage in two areas. Its monoclinic, pseudohexagonal "barrel-shaped" form is quite disseminated bit still definable. It has a beige coloration and a pearly luster, and is opaque. What little host rock is present consists of partly intact quartz crystals and broken lazulite and siderite crystals. The piece is hot-glued to a square acrylic base.
