A rather thin, shapeless Bytownite chunk makes up this thumbnail specimen. The piece is somewhat weathered but shows no fresh damage. Nor does it show any appreciable crystal form, as all edges and faces are curved or uneven. It has a dull, pale yellow coloration and a dull matte-to-vitreous luster, and appears to be transparent and quite clear, though its surface patina makes this difficult to confirm. What I first thought was some type of a host rock is apparently several encrustations of organic matter (probably a lichen or moss) that have partly covered the stone.
