This fantastic Scorodite specimen was illustrated in the Bou Azzer issue of the Mineralogical Record, Volume 38, number 5 on page 395. It is truly one of the more remarkable Scorodites around. The largest crystal measures 1cm. All of the crystals are very glassy and well formed and appear bluish green in natural sunlight and greenish under fluorescent lights. The digital camera captures a blue tone. It naturally sits well without aid and has no damage.
