A few dozen small, pink Inesite crystals infest this thumbnail specimen. They occur in a four-sided prismatic form with a sloping termination. Their luster is waxy to pearly and they are dimly translucent. The crystals do not exceed 1/8"(3 mm) in length, and rest on a host rock that looks like a finely-grained granite, but there is not much of it. The specimen is glued into a plastic specimen box for protection.
