A matrix of sparkling, snow white quartz microcrystals hosts a few opaque, pink rhodochrosite crystals, with individual crystals reaching almost 6 mm in size. The majority of these rhodochrosites are complete, but a few are cleaved. More rhodochrosites are seen on the flat side of the hemispherical quartz mound. This flat side also hosts a central cluster of tiny, mixed sulfides. No significant damage is noted.
