Item Description

A profusion of sharp, sparkly indigo-blue lazulite prisms, to 8 mm, and gemmy brown siderite crystals along with starkly contrasting sparkly drusy quartz fields richly covers the large, undulating, 3-dimensional, sculptural matrix. The 2.7 cm partially hidden quartz point at the crest is a fine accessory and complement. Lazulite is the signature phosphate species from the famous remote phosphatic shales and sideritic ironstone deposits at Rapid Creek. Old material from the 1980s or 90s, Ex Bob Reynolds Collection, a well-known fossil and mineral expert and former Curator of the San Bernardino County Museum. He passed away in 2020. The rare phyllomanganate-chromate species Reynoldsite was named in his honor in 2011. Classic, rich and excellent Rapid Creek lazulite combination material. Rapid Creek has produced the world's finest examples of lazulite. See the fine 1992 Mineralogical Record Yukon Phosphates issue, Vol. 23, No. 4.
