Skorpionite Pseudomorph After Tarbuttite
Skorpion Mine, Rosh Pinah, Luderitz District, Karas Region, Namibia
Miniature, 3.2 x 2.9 x 1.8 cm
This odd specimen is the only one like it we saw, and SEEMS to be a replacement of tarbuttite by skorpionite (as judged by color, texture, and also weight which is markedly different). These unusual pastel green crystals to 1 cm faithfully preserve the original tarbuttite habit.
