This riveting display-sized matrix scorodite is a "jewel" with astonishing brilliant blue color, in crystals to almost 2 cm in length. Such matrix specimens are EXTREMELY uncommon. The crystals are perched on a sparkling matrix of brilliant brown-black beudantite, making this also an uncommonly rich beudantite specimen. Purchased from dealer Herb Obodda, who had gotten it from a private collection just before Tucson of 2001. 8 x 5 x 3 cm
