This specimen consists of a thick crust of ilvaite crystals with no matrix material. These crystals are black and lustrous, displaying the vertical striations typical to this species. Some of the crystals have an earthy brownish-black coating of ilvaite on one side. The only damage to this specimen is on the edges, and this is very minor.
