Several Cylindrite sprays are embedded in the metallic host rock of this hand specimen. Each spray is made up of many radiating Cylindrite crystals, some of which are damaged or broken due to their exposure- they reach lengths of just over 1" (2.5 cm). All have excellent cylindrical shape (hence their name) and the standard dark silvery-gray color and dull metallic luster. I cannot define the host rock, but it is definitely metallic in nature.
