Several veins and crusts of crystalline Gormanite permeate and coat the brown host rock of this piece. The crusts are generally in fair condition, as they show considerable damage, but the veins are likely in very good condition, being protected by the host. The crystals that make up these formations do not generally exceed 0.1" (4 mm) and are heavily intergrown, so that their triclinic form is difficult to effectively study. All have a deep blue color with hints of green and gray and a pearly luster, and are dimly translucent as a rule.
