A dusting of tiny Meta-torbernite crystals rests on the quartz base of this hand specimen. These crystals appear to be in excellent condition and are tiny, not reaching 1 mm in diameter. All have the standard pale green color and pearly luster of their specie, and - when studied through a loupe - show the classic tetragonal tabular form. The base, upon closer study, actually appears to be a mixture of white granite or syenite and layers of intensely-packed quartz crystals.
