A pale pink Thenardite crust coats the halite base of this hand specimen. The Thenardite is massive, showing no evidence of crystal form, and has a pink color that is paler than that of the halite base. Its luster is essentially dull, and it is translucent or opaque. As it has pseudomorphed from the halite below, it has retained the original shape, including the "hopper effect" of the halite- the halite itself still has very good form.
