The massive quartz host rock of this specimen acts as a bed for a single hexagonal "book" of Molybdenite. The book is in excellent condition, showing no human-induced damage, and has good hexagonal form and a flaky, micaceous tendency. It has a moderate gray coloration that resembles freshly-cleaved galena, and a similarly metallic luster. The book has dimensions of 0.5 x 0.4" (1.3 x 1.0 cm), and is probably no more than one or two millimeters thick. There are a few bits of muscovite accompanying the Molybdenite on the quartz host.
