A rather simple specimen, this piece consists of a section of the inside of a basalt vug that is lined with many pale orange aggregates of Heulandite crystals. These aggregates so not exceed 0.3" (8 mm) in any dimension and have a rather rounded, worn form that makes it difficult to determine the crystals' bladed form. Their pale orange color deepens towards the host rock, and seems to be somewhat directional. The crystals have a pearly to waxy luster and are dimly translucent. Among them rest a few aggregates of stilbite that have good form, a pearly luster, and are quite translucent. A few stilbite aggregates along one edge of the piece are broken, but all the other material on the base rock seems to be in good condition.
