The heart of this specimen is a cluster of lustrous, jet black and tabular ferberite crystals, with the largest individual measuring over 4 cm. Much of the ferberite is covered with an accenting layer of fine-grained muscovite. At the base are a few incomplete fluorite cubes. Some of the ferberites have narrow prism face cleavages, but these are not significant distractions. Stands for display without support.
