This small hand piece consists of a simple cluster of less than 10 intersecting Crocoites that are not attached to any base or host rock. The longest of these measures 1.2" (3.0 cm), none are complete, and all show at least minor damage. However, their monoclinic form is essentially good. They all have the deep orange color and bright, nearly adamantine luster that is common for the specie. No host rock is present, and the piece is affixed inside a plastic hand-sized box with an adhesive putty.
