For sale is a decrespignyite (Y) from Paratoo Copper mine, S.Aust. Parato is the Type Locality and only locality in the world for decrespignyite-(Y), this mineral is a very rare copper rare-earth carbonate. The is a rich twosided specimen, with the front side having a particularly strong saturated sky blue color!. All this sits on a layered shale matrix, I’m pretty sure there are also at least one other associated mineral on this specimen. Paratoo, a rather remote and previously obscure (prior to the discovery of decrespignyite) mine in outback Sth Aust, is know for its assemblage of uncommon minerals, particularly rare earth ones.
