This large hand specimen consists of a shapeless chunk of crystalline Labradorite. It has no evident form, though crystalline tendencies are visible, and all edges and faces are rough and uneven. The material is generally opaque, though definite translucence and even a bit of dim transparence can be seen around its thinner edges. Its coloration is a dull gray-brown and it exhibits the classic, colorful iridescence of its species- this coloration is predominantly yellow, though areas of orange, green and blue are also present. A thick vein of another, darker brown material extends partway through the piece, but there is no host rock present.
