A single Xenotime crystal comprises this thumbnail specimen. The crystal is in very good condition, showing only a small amount of damage at one end, and has moderately good tetragonal prismatic form- it shows some evidence of double-termination. Its brown color with golden highlights and pearly luster are standard for the specie, and it is translucent and appears to contain some rutile needles. There is no host rock present, and the piece is affixed inside a thumbnail box with a removable putty.
