Marshite is a very rare Copper Iodide (CuI) with a distinctive (but not disagreeable) disinfectant like smell (close up). The crystals start out colourless or yellow, and turn pinkish to brownish red with sunlight. This specimen is so fresh and properly stored that it remains colourless. This specimen is rich with glassy and transparent well formed crystals of Marshite (to 3mm) on (and in) a clay like matrix. A dense specimen of this rare Iodide mineral displaying well exposed crystals.
