Many tiny Wurtzite crystals rest on the crystalline quartz base of this thumbnail piece. These crystals are generally in excellent condition, showing almost no damage, and do not tend to exceed 0.1" (3 mm) in either length or diameter. All show variations of the standard hexagonal form, but are still well-formed. Their color is gray-black, and their luster is dull metallic. They rest among druses of small, milky quartz crystals, and the piece is affixed loosely in a plastic thumbnail box.
