A substantial Gormanite crust partly covers the dull brown base rock of this specimen. This crust is made up of hundreds of crystals, most of which do not exceed 0.1" (3 mm) in length. They are somewhat intergrown but still appear to have a reasonably good triclinic form. All have a deep blue color with hints of green and gray, and are dimly translucent as individuals. One or two thin layers of crystalline siderite permeate the host rock beneath the Gormanite crust. The piece is hot-glued onto an acrylic base.
