This Bytownite piece shows a small amount of fresh damage in the form of conchoidal surfaces, but is generally in good condition. Its triclinic prismatic form is warped and incomplete, but it still shows definite evidence of its crystalline shape: a few straight edges and flat faces that possess a rather dull pearly-to-waxy luster likely caused by weathering. The piece has a pale yellow coloration and is transparent and moderately clear, containing several internal fractures but few inclusions, if any. When viewed at certain angles, it reveals a rather bright glow that is reminiscent of moonstone- the enclosed documentation refers to it as "sunstone", though this is technically incorrect.
