They have rhombic dodecahedral crystal habit. White hair like Wollastonite forms the base. Apple-green Diopside crystals with prismatic habit are seen too. It is a remarkable specimen from this closed mine. This combination was found just in one pocket decades ago and specimens of this type are very difficult to find.
