At least 25 round Gyrolite clusters rest on the basalt base rock of this hand specimen. These nodules are generally in excellent condtion, showing no human-induced damage, and range in diameter from 0.1 - 0.9" (0.3 - 2.3 cm). All are made up of scores of tightly compact, rounded blades, of which only the edges are visible. The clusters generally have good form and possess a creamy-white coloration and a dull luster. They are accompanied by several pseudocubic calcites that are also in excellent condition and have dimensions similar to those of the Gyrolites. Their form is very good, and they are generally colorless, transparent, and quite clear, though several of them contain dark brown inclusions. They rest on a thin druse of tiny quartz crystals that coat the dark green igneous base.
