This small hand specimen consists of a rounded, worn piece of compact, fibrous and massive Sillimanite. It shows no crystal form but one can see a few fibrous tendencies. The material is mostly a pale brown in color, though some darker material with a violet tinge is present. It has a dull, waxy luster, but could likely be polished to a high gloss.
