Strengite

ID: CC2592

A specimen richly invested with glistening rich purple botryoidal Strengite (an Iron Phosphate) to 5mm accompanied by velvety black sphericals of Rockbridgeite. The matrix consists of dense massive Magnetite. A fantastic example for the locality.  Min Rec Vol 20, no.5 has a short article on mid 1980s find of Strengite specimens at this Swedish Iron ore location.
