Several pale pink Inesite crystals rest in a shallow hollow in the dull, chalky host rock of this specimen. These crystals reach lengths of 0.5" (1.3 cm) and are in excellent condition, as they appear to be completely undamaged. They appear to be weathered, but their triclinic prismatic form is still good, having mostly well-defined edges and clean faces whose luster ranges from waxy to bright pearly. All are dimly translucent. I cannot identify the host rock on which they rest.
