Soddyite is a hydrated uranyl silicate. Schoep (1922) named the mineral in honor of Frederick Soddy (1877-1956), British radiochemist. Here soddyite forms blocky yellow-tan microcrystals. The soddyite crystals form a crust of interlocking crystals, which covers the front face of the specimen. Very rich! This specimen was formerly in the Bob Kaar collection, a community college professor in the Bay area. Also accompanying the specimen is a Hansen Minerals Incorporated Label.
