A single Dravite crystal rests in the biotite matrix of this specimen. It has dimensions of 1.3 x 0.9 x 0.7" (3.4 x 2.2 x 1.8 cm) and is in moderately good condition, as one end is damaged. The rest of the crystal, however, is intact and in excellent condition. Its brown color is so dark that it appears black and opaque, though some translucence is visible along its edges under bright light. It has a greasy luster. There are some depressions in the mica host where other, smaller Dravites were removed, but no other crystals are visible.
