A crust of intergrown Creedite crystals coating a quartz and muscovite base make up this large thumbnail specimen. The crystals that make up the crust are mostly damaged, but several are still intact. They do not exceed 0.1" (3 mm) in length and have good monoclinic prismatic form, with well-defined edges and striated but clean faces that possess a pearly-to-vitreous luster. All have a pale lavender coloration and are transparent and quite clear.
