Goudeyite - Sold

Goudeyite is a hydrated copper aluminum arsenate mineral, part of the mixite group. Wise (1978) named the mineral in honor of Hatfield Goudey (1906–1985), an economic geologist, mineral collector, and micromineral dealer of San Mateo, California. This specimen is an altered volcanic rock with patches to 18 mm across of minute goudeyite needles. Quite a rich example.
