Two complete and two partial Milarite crystals rest on the albite base of this hand specimen. The largest complete crystal has dimensions of 4 x 2 mm, and the other complete one is much smaller. They show a moderately good hexagonal prismatic form; the broken ones show it better, with definable hexagonal cross-sections. All have a white color and a silky luster, and are transparent. The albite base on which they rest is of the variety called cleavelandite, and shows excellent pseudohexagonal blades.
