The Augelite is present in this specimen on one side as off-white cleavage planes with a pearly luster. This is a good example of the origin of the name for the species which is from the ancient Greek word, auge, which means shine or luster in allusion to the cleavage surfaces. There is also a fair amount of massive, blue color material in the specimen. This is most likely Scorzalite but could also be Trolleite or Lazulite which are both present at the location. There are also many small black blebs of a unindentified material throughout of much of the speicmen.

Condition: Composed of massive material.

Flaws: Essentially massive material.
