This rather unusual specimen consists of a cluster of thin, white, diamond-shaped Glauberite blades that are partially intergrown into each other. The crystals range in size from 3 x 3 x 1 mm to 1.8 x 1.6 x 0.1" (4.6 x 4.1 x 0.3 cm) and have a very bright white color and a matte luster. They are also completely opaque. The small amount of damage that is visible on the specimen shows that these crystals are actually covered with a thin layer of decayed material- their cores are actually colorless and transparent.
