This is a good example of the mineral gormanite. One surface of the specimen is covered with sprays of gormanite crystals ranging from perhaps 3 to 6 millimeters in length. All have a dark gray-blue-green color (quite similar to fresh vivianite) and the intergrown crystals lend a dull appearance to the specimen, except for occasional reflections from vitreous crystals. A loupe reveals that the individual crystals are, indeed, vitreous, and the few isolated ones appear transparent, although most are barely translucent.
