A cluster of several large Danburite prisms comprises this cabinet specimen. The crystals are generally in very good condition- one or two are noticeably but lightly damaged- and reach dimensions of nearly 2.6 x 1.2 x 0.8" (6.6 x 3.0 x 2.1 cm). All appear to have excellent orthorhombic form. Their color is likely milky-white and their luster is likely vitreous, but I cannot be certain of their clarity, as all are coated with a druse of tiny quartz crystals. A few dull creamy calcites are also present.
