The entire specimen consists of crystalline, pale to bright orange carnallite. Attractive miniature and a good example of this quite rare chloride from an unusual Russian locality. Note that carnallite should be handled and stored with care as it is unstable in the presence of moisture. Ex. Mark Shathin collection, collected 1977.
