Crystal clusters of lustrous, bundled mimetite crystals, thin and vertical individually but overall in cluster to 1.0 cm across, completely cover a matrix of massive black ore. There are also a few crystals of gemmy and glassy cerussite, to .5 cm across, which are perched on the mimetite clusters. Unusual form for mimetite here. Ex. Charlie Key.
