The Charlesite crystals are the small white colored, trigonal crystals which are quite reminiscent of crystals form Franklin, the type location. Also present are small black hematite crystals with a high sparkly luster. There are also yellow colored Sturmanite crystals which are mostly obscured by a coating of orange/colored material which presumably iron oxides.

Condition: Very Good

Flaws: Nothing Appreciable
