Judging from the locality description, I'll wager that it would be easy to find out exactly where this specimen came from! There are dozens of Actinolite crystals on a base of another olivine-related material. These crystals show some heavy damage in some areas, but several are in surprisingly good condition, with complete terminations that themselves have a pretty, silky luster. One can just catch the translucence of some of the more exposed crystals, which can achieve lengths of 1 inch. It's a large piece that is somewhat "spread out", and quite thin in spots.
