Small Cabinet, 5.5 x 5.0 x 3.7 cm
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Mun. de Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Scorodite is one of the three Holy Grail species from Mina Ojuela, along with legrandite and purple adamite. It is also probably the rarest, as very few blue scorodites were found. This showy and excellent specimen has numerous small vugs to 1.0 cm lined with gemmy, blue scorodite crystals to 2 mm in wedge-shaped limonite matrix. This piece is from the one-time find in 1981 and is highly representative of this very desirable species. Ex. George Elling Collection.
