For sale is a specimen what can be considered quite uncommon, scorodite, from Wulfram Camp, Qld. This specimen was mine about 12 years ago, in the dying days of the old mine. The scorodite appears to be pseudomorphing something, but I can really tell what. The quartz are fully terminated. This is interesting under the microscope, there are a couple of other associated minerals. Good examples of scorodite from Australia are few and far between.

For sale is a trilithionite from the Londonderry Lithium deposit. A nice specimen with smallish plates of reasonably intense purple lepidolite in a pegmatite matrix of weathered feldspar and quartz . Tjos os a excellent example of Australian trilithionite , and has a very early number (58) from Bernie Whytes collection, so my guess is that it was mined in the 1960s or early 70s. NOTE. Trilithionite and lepidolite are closely related, and it turns out that all lepidolites previously labeled as such have been found to be trilithionite.
