Boleite
Amalia Mine, Santa Rosalia Co., Baja California, Mexico
45 x 32 x 40mm

A much sought after matrix specimen of this rare silver bearing halide.  Boleite is known from a number of localities, though those from Mexico and Chile are the most well known. The samples from Mexico however, are the only ones that ever display crystals larger than micromounts.The primary reason that matrix specimens are so rare, is that the crystals are found in clay.  Unless that clay is stabilized (as in this case) the clay crumbles, leaving lone blue cubes.In the closeup, you can see that the crystal's edges have a bit of a beveled appearance-- that is due to an epitaxial growth of pseudoboleite.
