This hand specimen consists of two intersecting Molybdenite "books" that are partly embedded in a massive quartz base. The larger of the books has a diameter of about 0.7" (1.8 cm) and appears to have been cleaved, judging by the bright metallic luster of its exposed face. The other, smaller book rests behind the larger one and is mostly embedded in the quartz. Both have the standard gray color and dull metallic luster of the specie.
