A few incomplete Pyrargyrite crystals rest on the gray base rock of this thumbnail piece. These crystals are in fair to good condition, showing moderate to considerable damage, and do not exceed 0.4" (1.0 cm) in either length or width. Where intact, they show reasonably good hexagonal form that is nearly bladed in habit. All have a dark gray color and a dull metallic luster, but show glimpses of dim transparence and deep red color when held up to the light. The piece is affixed inside a plastic thumbnail box.
