This specimen is mostly intergrown crystals of light purple charoite. The charoite has a silky luster, and the fibers are arrayed in small clusters that appear to bend and swirl. One side of the specimen has been cut and polished - the colors are more intense on that side. Another side has excellent color, while the opposite side appears weathered and nearly gray. There are also several small golden crystals of tinaksite, plus many clusters of black aegirine, only a few of which display a good radial structure.
