Much of the specimen's display surface is covered with lustrous, distinctly curved dolomite crystals, with individual crystals reaching about 7 mm. Peppered around the dolomite are tiny chalcopyrite crystals some of which are brassy to iridescent, while others are somewhat green and corroded. Also present are clusters of snow-white, parallel barite blades, with the largest barite aggregate measuring 1.6 cm. Finally peaking out from under all this are a few patches of golden-yellow fluorite, which fluoresces white under both longwave and shortwave UV. No damage to the dolomite-rich display face. Sits perfectly for display on its naturally flat base.
