A considerable amount of rough, shapeless Eudialyte makes up this hand specimen. It shows no crystal form whatsoever, and so is either massive or so broken that not a face or edge is left. It has the standard deep red-violet coloration and vitreous luster, and is transparent and dimly to moderately clear, having rather intense internal fracturing. It is embedded in a piece of syenite matrix.
