This is a sampleite on matrix from Endeavour 26 mine NorthParkes, NSW. The vivid sky blue color is accurate, for this uncommon mineral in the oxidized zones of copper deposits in arid climates. This is a striking display of intensely colored pearly blue sampleite crystals on contrasting matrix. A rich sampleite with an unusually large display area for this hydrated sodium, calcium, copper phosphate chloride. Very rare.
