This thumbnail consists of several broken, incomplete and heavily intergrown Carletonite crystals. Their tetragonal prismatic form is easily seen, however, and all have the standard vitreous luster on their undamaged surfaces- cleaved surfaces show a pearly luster. Their color ranges from pale blue to colorless and white, and all are translucent and heavily internally flawed. The piece is brittle, so I advise care in removal from its thumbnail box.
