A brilliantly lustrous, 1.3 cm carrollite cluster sits atop a crystalline dolomite matrix. Minor, nondescript chalcopyrite is also present. As is typical for this material, the carrollite has some chips; tiny at the front but larger at the back. Could be trimmed to a thumbnail, but previous experience has shown that carrollites have a habit of detaching from matrix as the dolomite splits. A typical example for the species/locality.
