A SUPER GROUP of 11 indigo-blue boleite cubes to 6 mm from the personal collection of Ed Swoboda, who spearheaded the 1975 mining effort at the famous Amelia Mine at Boleo. 4 of the boleites even have attached gypsum matrix, with the one piece having sharp faces. Neat! A few have edge wear, but most do not. All have good color and nearly all are complete. These came directly from Ed's garage to me around the time he turned 90. He is still mining, though this remains one of his great finds to this day.
