This hand specimen consists of a chunk of basalt base rock on which rest several Apophyllite crystals. These crystals are generally in good condition and do not exceed 0.0.9" (2.3 cm) in length. All have excellent tetragonal prismatic form and are colorless, transparent, and dimly to very clear. They are accompanied by several stilbite blades and a few chubby, doubly-terminated calcites. All of these rest on a druse of tiny quartz crystals which covers a white agate crust.
