It has been years since I have seen good matrix specimens of boleite like this with multiple crystals of good size. There are 4 sharp cubic crystals here, all sharply formed and highly lustrous. The boleite is the characteristic dark navy blue, and the faces of the crystals are very smooth. Many of the matrix pieces that turn up occur on clay stabilized with glue, but not on this one, which is composed of anglesite and a variety of oxides. Pieces like this, of this size, quality, and richness do not come up for sale often.
