These specimens all considt of a mass of vlasovite, usually a rounded crystal, in deep pink eudialyte. In some of the specimens, the vlasovite has an alteration rim of white gittinsite or alteraered fractures of gittinsite. You'll see from the pictures. Some of the vlasovits have no associated gittinsite. Interesting and rare association!
