From the one time find at the end of summer 2000 in Bolivia. This is a fine specimen of the rare and recently approved sulfate Nikischerite. This mineral is the iron analogue of the manganese species shigaite. This piece features two stacked, fantastic, sharp, highly lustrous, spherical, deep green crystal groups.
