This small hand specimen consists of two intersecting sprays of radiating Scolecite needles. The smaller of the two sprays has a visible length of less than 0.5" (1.3 cm), whereas the larger spray measures 3.4" (8.6 cm) in length. This larger spray shows moderate damage in the form of broken crystals, and is generally in good condition. The crystals therein have excellent monoclinic needle-like form, with well-defined edges and striated but clean faces. They are colorless, transparent, and reasonably clear- though they tend to take on a cloudy translucence near their base- and possess the standard bright pearly luster.
