This thumbnail specimen consists of a single Cobaltite crystal that is partly embedded in a metallic sulfide base. This crystal measures about 0.2" (5 mm) in diameter and is in good condition, showing little fresh damage. Its pyritohedral form is somewhat warped but still reasonably good, and it has the standard bright silvery-gray color and bright metallic luster of its specie. The piece is hot-glued onto a flat, acrylic base.
