This thumbnail piece consists of a chunk of dark gray base rock on which rests a cluster of fine Kermesite needles. These needles are not intergrown with each other, and lay atop the base, as opposed to being embedded into it. All appear to be in good condition, and though they are too thin to effectively study with a loupe, their triclinic form is likely very good. All have the standard deep red color and adamantine luster.
