This hand specimen consists of several clusters of Inesite prisms that are scattered on a weathered host rock. These prisms range in length from less than 0.1" (3 mm) to nearly 0.5" (1.3 cm) and are generally in moderately good condition, as many of them are either broken or badly weathered. Those that are intact have good triclinic form, with well-defined edges and curved but clean faces that possess a dull, waxy-to-pearly luster. All have the standard dull pink coloration and are only dimly translucent at best. The base on which they rest appears to be made mostly of Inesite that is either massive and weathered or crystalline and broken.
