Several rhombohedral Chabazite crystals rest on the quartz base of this specimen. They are in excellent condition with no evidence of any human-induced damage, and have good form, though five are intergrown and not completely formed . The largest crystal measures about 0.7" (1.8 cm) in all dimensions, and is the least complete and most intergrown of all of them. Several very small individual crystals are scattered around the intergrown cluster of larger ones. All have an orange-pink coloration, a pearly to vitreous luster, and are translucent, with small areas of transparence and many internal fractures. Along with the Chabazites are a few heulandite aggregates, one of which is complete and shows good form. They are white in color and translucent with a pearly luster. All of these rest on a druse of tiny transparent quartz crystals, which in turn rest on a thin layer of pale gray agate. The agate coats a thin skin of igneous rock that may have been part of the outer coating of a geode or vug.
