Good coverage of Sincosite with a few patches of blue Phosphovanadylite-(Ca). This is one of the many colors Sincosite will appear. It is hard to photo this color. In person it is a brassy, "metallic" color. The crystals are about 1mm. The Phosphovanadylite may turn black with time. You'll need to keep it tightly wrapped with plastic.
