A few small patches of sky-blue Connellite rest on the base of this cabinet specimen. These patches are actually crushed mattes of tiny Connellite fibers that are far too fine to study with a loupe. The crusts have a dull luster and appear to extend part way into the base rock in a small vein. A myriad of other copper-bearing minerals are visible on the host rock, including cuprite, malachite and possibly chrysocolla or turquoise, brochantite, conichalcite and one or more copper sulfide minerals.
