Several intergrown sprays of radiating Franckeite crystals make up this thumbnail specimen. These crystals are mostly damaged or crushed due to their exposure and softness, but many are still intact. They do not exceed 0.3" (8 mm) in length, but have good triclinic bladed form, with sharp edges and clean faces. All have the standard moderate silvery-gray color and metallic luster, and are opaque, of course. There is no host rock present- the specimen is made up entirely of Franckeite.
