Vugs and voids in a dark brown iron hydroxide/oxide matrix host numerous small but lustrous orange to orange-brown mimetite crystals. Several colorless cerussite crystals clusters are also present. Most of the mimetites are transparent. The cerussites are translucent to opaque. Although the mimetites and cerussite are all rather small (up to a few mm in size) the specimen is excellent for exploration with hand lens, microscope lens, and camera lens (more so than my lousy photos suggest).
