Two "books" of micaceous Molybdenite crystals are visible in a muscovite matrix on this specimen. One is completely exposed, whereas the other is halfway buried. The more exposed of the two has a hexagonal, almost diamond-shaped form, and the other's form is indefinite. Both have a dark gray color and metallic luster, and are opaque. The muscovite matrix that they are in is attached to a host rock that is made up of equal parts of massive quartz and a feldspar. There are one or two other tiny patches of this material, but they are only bits of crystals, and have no form.
