At least 25 Babingtonite prisms rest on the quartz druse base of this hand specimen. These crystals do not generally exceed 0.1" (3 mm) in length and are in very good condition. They tend to be arranged in small clusters, and show excellent triclinic form. All have the standard black color and vitreous luster. What appears to be a worn, incomplete prehnite nodule (though it could be heulandite) accompanies the Babingtonites. All rest on the quartz base, which is made up of intersecting druses of hundreds of small, white crystals.
