Description

Balls of Ferrisymplesite to 1mm on Scorodite. These occur in vugs which resulted from the weathering of a mixture of löllingiteand dolomite. The dolomite was leached away leaving vugs filled with predominantly scorodite. Rarely on some of the scorodite can be found white to pale yellow poorly developed ferrisymplesite crystals and crusts that sometimes form botryoids. The ID of all three species has been confirmed by EDS. The scorodite has also been confirmed by XRD.
