This flat cabinet specimen is made up almost entirely of compact, acicular and crystalline, radiating Creedite. Though many of the crystals are noticeably crushed, there are still hundreds that are intact and in excellent condition. These crystals have excellent monoclinic prismatic form. Some of them show a pale pink color which is common for specimens from this locality and the standard vitreous luster, but most are nearly colorless and have a dull pearly luster, likely due to weathering of some sort. The more massive material is dull in luster and has a pale violet-blue coloration. Only a small amount of a pale gray host rock is present.
