Nearly colorless to light brown, somewhat glassy, translucent stilbite blades and groups on a basalt matrix. The largest cluster, measuring 2.4 cm, forms a slightly radiating 'wheat sheaf' group, common to stilbite. This sample is very typical for stilbite from the locality, which is now nearly (if not fully) extinct, as it is being backfilled for future development. Minor calcite. Displays well without additional support.
