The two sides of this specimen are considerably different, although the entire specimen appears to be composed of Siderite. On one side of the specimen, the surface is covered with small, sparkly crystals with a high luster. The color of these crystals is a dark brownish red/purple maroon. On the other side of the specimen, for the most part, the color is much lighter with much less luster; although, there are areas with crystals similar to the first side. Also, this side of the specimen is quite complex with rounded ridges and projections. The specimen does come with an older label which is not pictured.
Flaws: There are a few, small, bruised areas.
