One matrix face is covered with abundant jet black. lustrous, and tabular ferberite crystals plus equally abundant quartz points; these being mostly translucent to transparent. The ferberite and quartz crystals both top out at about 6 mm, and are generally perpendicular to the matrix face. Minor muscovite is also noted. Many of the ferberites and quartzes are complete, but some are not. A good example for the species (ferberite) and locality.
