This small but heavy hand specimen consists of a nearly pure chunk of Nickeline. It is amorphous, showing no crystal form, and is in reasonably good condition. Most of the piece is covered with a thin layer of a powdery, pale green substance which may be annabergite. However, there is a substantial portion that is rather freshly broken, revealing the Nickeline beneath. It has a bright metallic luster and a silvery-gray coloration with a very subtle hit of pink. There is no host rock on the specimen.
