Hundreds of tiny Kaemmererite crystals rest on the dark gray base of this specimen. These crystals are in fair condition, as many are noticeably crushed, but most are intact and in good condition. While most of these crystals do not exceed 2 mm in length or diameter, one measures nearly 0.2" (5 mm). Their monoclinic prismatic form appears to be good, and all have the classic deep red-violet color and bright pearly luster of their species. The dark gray host rock shows a few noticeable specks of green color and has an almost fibrous appearance from a certain angle.
