There are hundreds of bright red-orange Crocoite crystals on this specimen, ranging from a few millimeters to about 0.5"(1.3 cm) long. They are in their standard thin, monoclinic, needlelike crystal form, have a pearly luster, and are translucent. Though several of the larger crystals are damaged, there are some complete terminations that are large enough to see without magnification. They rest on a brown-black host rock that looks suspiciously like limonite. The Crocoite crystals are heavily intergrown, so together they look like a complex web.
