On a rather large quartzite base lies a cluster of Wolframite crystals. There is not much definition in the cluster, so it is difficult to isolate individual crystals, although there are a few visible that are hiding below the main cluster. I deduce that the lack of definition is caused by damage, occurring both before and during the specimen's exhumation. The crystals seem to attain a maximum length of about 1/2" and have the dark gray color, submetallic luster, and hackly fracture that is standard for this mineral.
