Mineral Specimen #2803 Stewartite
Stewart Mine, San Diego Co., California
4.1 X 2.6 X 2.3 and 4.0 x 3.2 x 1.7
Ex. Steve Pullman, Ex. California Academy of Sciences
The Stewartite is the yellow material found on both specimens. These specimens were in a box in the Steve Pullman collection with one card for both specimens. There appear to be catalogue numbers on each specimen which have been painted over. Although the other species are not identified on the labels it is likely the blue is Strengite (or possibly Phosphosiderite), the dark material is Sicklerite. A bit of a mystery is the bronze colored fibrous material.
