Several sprays of tiny Boltwoodite needles rest on the calcite/siderite base of this piece. Though a few of these clusters are damaged, most are in excellent condition. The needles therein are a bit too small to effectively study with a loupe, but they appear to have good monoclinic form. All have the "maize-yellow" color and pearly luster that are common for this specie, and are generally translucent.
