This thumbnail piece shows some of the most well-formed Eudialyte crystals that I have seen. These crystals do not exceed 0.3" (8 mm) in diameter and are generally in good condition. Where undamaged, their trigonal, thick tabular form is excellent, showing well-defined edges and clean faces that possess a pearly-to-vitreous luster. All have a pink, rusty coloration and are only dimly translucent, if at all. They are embedded in the standard pegmatite matrix, and the piece is affixed inside a plastic specimen box with a removable putty.
