Of Finwe's second son we read: "Fingolfin was his father's son: tall, dark and proud", The Peoples of Middle-earth (HoMe 12), Last Writings, 'The Shibboleth of Feanor' ). From which can be inferred that Finwe was also tall, dark and proud. In the Notes for 'The Shibboleth of Feanor' Note 19 says of him "He had black hair, and brilliant grey-blue eyes."

He was not the most patient of Elves it seems, for after the death of his first wife he was unable to wait for her spirit to return to her body and, eager to beget more children, took another wife.
