A rare specimen of this beautiful sodium magnesium aluminum phosphate hydrate from the type locality and from the personal collection of Paulo Matioli! Blue-gray, prismatic crystals of matioliite to 2 mm with blue-green prismatic crystals of gormanite, and yellow crandallite in vugs within white albite. This is a great piece for the species from the man who found the whole lot of them! Described in 2005, few have ever been for sale.
