This thumbnail specimen consists of a layer of yellowish woodhouseite crystals growing on a terminated quartz crystal. These crystals are tiny, but with the aid of a loupe, one can distinguish the pseudocubic habit that this mineral typically shows. The true symmetry of these crystals is hexagonal. Also evident is the vitreous luster of this mineral. This specimen shows no damage; it is a good example of this rare species.
