At least 10 slender, prismatic Tremolite crystals rest on what I think is a feldspar base. Almost all of the crystals appear to be damaged and incomplete- there may be one or two that are intact. Though none appear to have an intact termination, their prism faces represent a good triclinic prismatic form, with well-defined edges and clean faces that possess a vitreous luster. All have a pale-green coloration which seems to be the standard for individual crystals. Along with the Tremolites are 3 or 4 black epidote crystals that are in fair condition, as most are incomplete. They have the standard black coloration and vitreous luster of this material. The host rock shows some definite crystalline form, but most of its surface area is uneven and shapeless.
