This thumbnail specimen is made up almost entirely of intergrown Chabazite crystals. Though there is some obvious breakage due to the specimen's separation from its host rock, most of the crystals are undamaged and in excellent condition. Though their intense intergrowth provides much interference, the crystals show a reasonably good trigonal prismatic form, and some appear to be double-terminated. The largest crystal has dimensions of 0.3 x 0.2 x 0.2" (8 x 5 x 5 mm) and like all the others, has a milky-white color and a vitreous-to-pearly luster. All are translucent but appear to be intensely internally-fractured. There does not seem to be any sort of host rock present on the piece.
