Two or three intersecting Kyanite crystals make up this cabinet piece. Two of these crystals are less than 50% complete due to breakage, but the third is intact and in excellent condition. It has dimensions of 4.3 x 0.5 x 0.1" (11.0 x 1.2 x 0.3 cm) and shows excellent triclinic bladed form, with a complete, stepped termination. It has the classic uneven blue color and pearly luster and is generally translucent, though portions are dimly transparent. Only a very small amount of the white quartz base rock is present.
