Dozens of clustered and individual Babingtonite crystals are scattered within the hollows of this cabinet specimen. These crystals are generally in excellent condition, showing very little damage because of their protected location, and show triclinic tabular and prismatic forms that range from excellent to essentially nonexistent. Though difficult to measure, some crystals reach lengths of 0.2" (5-6 mm). All have the standard black color and bright vitreous luster. The hollows in which they rest are lined with beds of very tiny apophyllite crystals.
