A small globular cactus of a dull bluish-green color, that has multiple protuberances. It differs from the other Gymnocalyciums for less marked ribs, on which large oval whitish downy areoles can be seen. From these areoles small thin and slightly twisted spines, always of a white color, come out. Its funnel-shaped inflorescences, tinged with pink, have a silky sheen.
