This thumbnail specimen consists of an amorpous chunk of crystalline Eudilyte. It shows no definable crystal form and is generally rough and uneven on all surfaces. Its color is deep red with a violet tinge, and its luster is pearly to vitreous. The material is moderately to dimly translucent due to intense internal fracturing, and is translucent in small areas. Only a thin crust of a dark host rock is set into one surface.
