Description

This rare specimen comes from a small one time occurrence towards the end of 2015 at the Skorpion mine. During the same period other scholzite pseuodos were found hence the assumption of this identification, with similar needle like crystal structure.

The yellow color is unique to this find as are the isolated radiating sprays that consists of hollow tubes. Peripheral contacted edges reveal traces of typical pearlescent scholzite needles and there are minor hemimorphite crystals on the upper surface immediately recognizable by their glassy luster.

This specimen reacts to uv light exposure.
