This specimen consists of a single large uvite crystal and dozens of small ones intergrown with many tiny clear calcite crystals. These crystals are in excellent condition, showing very little damage. The large crystal (over 1 cm wide) has good trigonal form, in the prismatic, almost columnar habit that is common with all tourmalines. Their color is a deep, dull green and their luster is the standard vitreous, and all are only dimly translucent.
