Three Stellerite clusters rest on the apophyllite and stilbite base of this thumbnail piece. The largest of these clusters has dimensions of 0.6 x 0.5 x 0.4" (1.4 x 1.3 x 1.0 cm), and the smallest shows the only damage, being incomplete. Each contains several semi-compact, radiating Stellerite blades. These blades have a slightly brownish-orange coloration and the standard bright pearly luster, and are translucent to dimly transparent, depending on their intergrowth. The piece is hot-glued inside a plastic specimen box.
