This specimen consists of a large, formless chunk of massive Willemite that is partly suffused with a few other minerals. There may also be several definite Willemite crystals present, but if so, all of them are broken. The Willemite has a green-yellow coloration (though some of the material has a reddish hue) and a dull luster, and is basically opaque. Trapped within this material are hundreds of tiny franklinite crystals- all of the exposed crystals are broken, and many are otherwise warped due to growing conditions or intergrowth. There is also a small amount of calcite present.
