A single, large Hanksite crystal makes up this specimen. It is in excellent condition, showing only a very small spot of fresh damage, and has excellent hexagonal prismatic form, with well-defined edges, clean faces, and double pyramidal terminations that are truncated by small basal faces. Its luster is dull and waxy at best and its color is a dull yellow-green. Though not completely transparent, it is enough so that one can see the dark greenish-black and white inclusions within. There is no host rock present.
