A single Wardite octahedron comprises this small thumbnail specimen. It is not quite complete, missing one corner, but is otherwise in excellent condition. Its form is very good, with well-defined edges and clean faces that possess a pearly-to-vitreous luster. Its white color is faintly tinged with blue, and there are a few small spots of dark blue color present and visible which are likely due to its former close association with some lazulite. The crystal is translucent, cloudy, and heavily internally fractured. There is no host rock present, and it has been mounted in a plastic specimen box.
