Blödite is a hydrated sodium magnesium sulfate. The mineral name honors German chemist Carl August Blöde (1773-1820) (Iohn, 1821). Blödite is water soluble, and forms by dehydration of a dry lake. Like many species forming in dry lake muds, blödite forms complete single crystals.

This is a large single crystal of blödite. Such large crystals date to collecting days of Art Eadie (1912-1989), who found the largest blödite crystals known from this locality. Part of the collection of E.R. Laskowski (1949-2020), a mining engineer who retired to Tucson, Arizona.
