Very fine acicular, hair-like crystals of the very rare molybdate Biehlite radiate out as individual silky needles to about 1 cm and form compacted tangled mats which constitute the matrix. The Biehlite hairs are pure white to light grey with occasional pale yellow areas. An excellent thumbnail of this difficult to obtain species from its type locality at Tsumeb.
