This large cabinet piece consists of a quartz-covered basalt base on which rest at least 9 Goosecreekite aggregates. These aggregates generally have dimensions of 0.5 x 0.4 x 0.4" (1.3 x 1.0 x 1.0 cm) and are in very good condition - one is broken and incomplete, and one other aggregate is lightly damaged. Each is made up of several Goosecreekite crystals whose hexagonal forms are difficult to study due to their heavy intergrowth. All have the standard white color and a pearly luster, and are translucent. Other than the crystalline quartz druse that coats the basalt base, there are two heulandite aggregates on the piece - one of these is intact, but the other is badly broken and incomplete.
