This specimen consists of grains and blebs of baratovite in an aegirine and misterite host rock. The best way to identify the baratovite is by putting it under an ultraviolet light. The places that fluoresce strongly are baratovite. I could not determine the monoclinic form from this specimen, although it is at least semi-crystalline in nature. There is no damage to this specimen.
