A single Heulandite crystal rests in the basalt vug that makes up the base of this specimen. This crystal is in fair to poor condition, as it is heavily damaged and broken at one end. However, it has excellent monoclinic bladed form, and appears to be made up many thinner blades that are stacked together. It is colorless, dimly transparent and cloudy, and has the standard pearly luster. The vug in which the Heulandite crystal rests is lined with a thin druse of tiny, transparent quartz crystals. This druse takes on an almost botryoidal shape in some areas and coats a very thin stalactite that almost intersects the Heulandite crystal.
