A few small clusters of radiating Kermesite needles rest on the gray base of this hand specimen. These crystals do not tend to exceed 3 mm in length, and are very fine. They are in very good condition but are generally either intergrown, embedded into the host, or both, making them difficult to study individually, but they likely have good triclinic form. All have a deep red color and an adamantine luster that is nearly submetallic.
