Numerous waxy green, translucent apatite crystals up to 1.8cm long cover the top of the specimen. The crystals are well formed and many are double terminated, the terminations are flat and vary from sharp to more crudely developed. The matrix has a vuggy texture and comprises an off-white sugary feldspar and deep green ?diopside with minor quartz. New find for 2019, this is unusual and highly aesthetic compared to most of the specimens from the find.
