A few flat sprays of fibrous, radiating Enstatite crystals rest on the black base of this small hand specimen. The crystals that make up these sprays do not exceed 0.3" (8 mm) in length and are generally in good condition, though some of the sprays appear to be damaged. All have a dull yellow-white color and a dull, pearly-to-waxy luster. There seems to be some more massive material on one side of the base rock.
