Several cloven, incomplete Carletonite pieces make up this thumbnail specimen. They are in fair to moderately good condition due to breakage, and do not exceed 0.4" (1 cm) in length or diameter. Where discernable, their tetragonal form is good. All have color ranging from pale blue to colorless and luster ranging from pearly to vitreous, and are transparent and only moderately clear at best. A host rock of what appears to be a feldspar sprinkled with tiny aegirines is attached. The piece is affixed in its thumbnail box with a removable putty.
