At least 7 intergrown Serandite crystals make up the bulk of this thumbnail piece. These crystals are generally in excellent condition, as they show almost no damage. The largest of these has dimensions of 1.2 x 0.4 x 0.3" (3.0 x 1.0 x 0.8 cm), though their "base" appears to consist of a larger, highly warped crystal. Besides this base, all have very good triclinic prismatic form and a pseudo-hexagonal shape that is elongated along one axis. Their salmon-pink color and silky luster are standard for the specie, as is their dim translucence. The Serandite serves as a base for several broken analcime crystals, but there is no host material present.
