Zanazziite
            from Taquaral, Itinga, Minas Gerais, Brazil

Bottle translucent green, very nicely formed Zanazziite to 1mm in clusters on Albite matrix with long, bladed Eosphorite. The old Don Cooke label identifies this specimen as Mg-Roscherite. I am assuming, based on Mindat photos, that it is Zanazziite.
