Three Serandite crystals make up the bulk of this specimen. All of them are damaged to a degree - two are rather heavily damaged and not quite complete - but this damage does not look as if it occurred recently. All have dimensions of about 1.3 x 0.8 x 0.1" (3.3 x 2.0 x 0.3 cm) and show good triclinic form; their habit is tabular or bladed, which I have not seen before in this mineral. All have the pink coloration and silky luster that are common for this specie, and are translucent. The Serandites are accompanied by a few milky analcime trapezohedra and a few tiny aegirine needles.
