A crust of tightly-arranged Gormanite crystals rests in a crevice in the dark brown host of this specimen. These crystals are in very good condition, as only a few are damaged, and do not generally exceed 0.2" (5 mm) in length. Their monoclinic bladed form is moderately good, showing some well-defined edges and striated but clean faces. They have the deep blue coloration and pearly luster of their species and are only dimly translucent as a rule. The brown host rock strongly resembles shale.
