The crust that coats the host rock of this particular specimen is made up of highly visible sprays of radiating Aurichalcite crystals. These crystals are very thin(less than 1 mm) and do not exceed 4 mm in length. They are colored pale blue, have a pearly luster, and are translucent. One spot on the crust that the crystals make up shows some obvious damage, but it is generally in good condition. It coats a base rock of goethite or limonite.
