A matrix cleft hosts numerous lustrous, colorless to light brown, flattened calcite rhombs (or discoids), these reaching about 1 cm in size. In one area, several of the calcites are rough and brown, due to mottramite overgrowth (or perhaps even replacement). Minor quartz points are also present. Minor cleaves are noted, but overall condition is very good.
