This is a large, sharp crystal of wodginite, with a bright, lustrous termination at the top and a tapered, complete termination at the bottom. In good condition overall with a chip out of the back of the left-hand side and some minor chipping on the right (this explains the great price for such a wodginite this size). Displayed correctly, the imperfections are largely out of view and this piece looks great.
About These Wodginites
Wodginite is not a common mineral, and it is quite difficult to acquire good crystals. These ones are from a recent find that produced a small number of specimens. Their idetification has been confirmed at the University of Arizona, and, along with subsequent EDS work, it has been established that of the various members of the wodginite group, they are wodginite.
