Rapid Creek, Dawson Mining District, Yukon Territory, Canada (TYPE LOCALITY)
Small Cabinet, 8.3 x 5.0 x 2.6 cm
Ex. Al Ordway
Bright tufts of sub-mm, acicular crystals are richly scattered about this large matrix specimen of the very rare species rapidcreekite. Clusters reach 3 mm across and this is one of the richest specimens I have seen for sale. Al Ordway, a skilled field collector, collected these on one of his several trips here in the late 70s and early 80s.
