Product Description

For sale is a rare (for Australia ) collector quality scorodite from Kingsgate NSW.  Featuring masses of tiny  green lustrous sparkling crystals to about 0.2mm in a quartz  cavity. As can be seen from the pics there is also some areas of massive scorodite associated. This location Old 25 pipe, can be considered the most famous and productive area of the Kingsgate field, but even from here scorodite is not common.  There is sparkling scorodite visible on virtually all faces of this specimen. The piece seems particularly heavy for its size, so I presume there is a decent amount of arsenopyrite  somewhere in the piece. Ex Jim Sharpe collection.
