Veins of massive and crystalline Ajoite permeate the pale brown host rock of this cabinet piece. Only a few tiny, triclinic needles are visible in a few places- these do not exceed 1 mm in length- whereas the rest of the material is massive. It all has the standard bright turquoise-blue coloration and a generally matte luster, though the tiny crystals are pearly.
