A few small clusters of long, thin Crocoite needles rest on the limonite host rock of this specimen. Though there are several crystals that are obviously broken, most are short due to their growth in a small area. None exceed 0.5" (1.3 cm) in length. They have well-defined edges and clean faces that show a bright, almost adamantine luster. All have the standard reddish-orange coloration of Crocoite, and most are noticeably transparent.
