A single round cluster of Stellerite constitutes this specimen from the Middle Eastern country of Kazakhstan. These crystals have aggregated together into small "sprays" of crystals, which then grew in an acicular fashion to create round clusters. This particular cluster has a dull orange color, pearly luster, and good translucence. The "sprays" are generally about 0.4"(1.0 cm) in length and expand to 1/4"(6 mm) in width at their terminations. This particular specimen has to little host rock to identify and is attached to a plastic specimen box.
