A few dozen Inesite crystals make up a crust that partly coats the sparse, brown-black host material of this piece. These crystals are generally in good condition and range in length from 0.1 -0.4" (0.3 - 1.0 cm). Their triclinic form is good, considering their intense intergrowth, and all have the pale pink color and dull, waxy luster that is standard for pieces from this locality. The sparse host material appears to be a decomposition product, possibly of a copper mineral, but I cannot define it.
