At least 10 small Mordenite blades rest on the brown host rock of this small thumbnail specimen. Several are broken and mostly incomplete, but at least 4 or 5 are intact and in good condition. The largest of these intact blades has a diameter of 0.3" (8 mm) and like all of the others, has a rather badly-defined orthohrombic bladed form- though their edges are sharp, they are quite uneven, as are their faces. All have a white coloration and a dull, nearly matte luster. The dark brown host rock is covrered with a very fine druse of what I believe are almost microscopic quartz crsytals. It is affixed inside a plastic specimen box with an adhesive putty.
