A flattened spray of acicular white biehlite crystals (to 22 mm), on a fragment of pale-yellow microcrystalline material that has not been analysed but which is possibly anglesite (?). The specimen is almost certainly from the third oxidation zone, where the holotype material is believed to have been found (Schl├╝ter et al., 2000).
