This is a very rare, relatively rich specimen of this rare uranium phosphate from the type locality in Cornwall. It features beautiful crystals to 2.5 mm in vugs all around the specimen. Bassetite is a very rare uranium mineral - I have never seen another for sale, in fact. This particular specimen could easily be trimmed to make for several nice examples, in smaller sizes.
