This small specimen consists of a clear colorless polylithionite mica in medium and large crystals perched upon a leifite base. The sheets of polylithionite are arranged in a flat rosette. It also fluoresces a sky blue color (not the usual lemon yellow) under short-wave UV. The leifite is in the form of a dense array of white acicular crystals, showing the proper lengthwise striations.
