A beautiful specimen of this rare mineral combination: apparently a strange admixture of Boleite & Pseudoboleite that is probably soon to be disallowed as a species name. Still, highly unusual, and with a color all its own. To be frank, I haven't confirmed the presence of Schwartzembergite which is supposed to be a minute red stain...but I am pricing this, thus, as simply an attractive percylite and if you can find the Schwartzembergite, that is a bonus.
