Yellow orange to beige colored Karibite mostly coats one side of this specimen. The Karibite has formed spherical aggregates, some of which are hollow. Underlying the Karibite is silvery Lollingite which exhibits striated crystal faces on the bottom of the specimen (sorry no pictures). The Karibite is a weathering byproduct of the Lollingite.
Flaws: Nothing Appreciable
