Two Dravite prisms are partly embedded in the dark mica schist host of this hand specimen. One of these crystals is broken about 1" (2.5 cm) from its base, but the other is complete, in very good condition, and measures 2.9" (7.3 cm) in length and 1.0" (2.5 cm) in diameter. Its trigonal form is very good, with well-defined edges and clean faces that possess a pearly-to-vitreous luster. Close examination of this crystal will reveal that it is in fact 2 crystals that are very heavily intergrown parallel to each other (I will refer to them as a single unit, though) and topped by shallow trigonal domed terminations. It has a black coloration and is essentially opaque.
