Bright green botryoidal garnierite (nepouite) richly covers most surfaces of the specimen and displays good lustre and translucency for the species. An excellent, attractive example for the species from a little known locality. Garnierite is a synonym of nepouite and although the latter is the IMA approved name, specimens from this locality are typically labelled garnierite. Ex. Mark Shathin collection, collected 1995.
