A vug which is full of small crystals of this rare phosphate. Although this species is better known from Bolivia, the type location is from the nearby Hagendorf North pegmatite. The crystals are up to 3mm in length (most are approximately 2 mm in length). Most of the crystals have a frosty surface, but there are a couple crystals with smooth lustrous faces. The color is a light green typical of this mineral from this location. The crystals in the vug are in very good condition with no appreciable damage. The specimen was from a German collection which was bought from Steve Pullman.
