Gormanite, Siderite
Rapid Creek, Dawson Mining District, Yukon Territory, Canada
Small Cabinet, 6.4 x 3.4 x 2.9 cm
A gormanite specimen of rare quality from Rapid Creek (known mostly for its lazulites), a really great specimen for what it is! There is one rather large, brushy cluster here, and several smaller sprays speckled about. The gormanite is beautifully isolated on a bed of transparent siderite crystals, which is another reason this specimen is special.
