Scorzalite



My husband got me this beautiful bracelet in New Hampshire.

Scorzalite is a dark blue phosphate mineral with iron, magnesium and aluminium phosphate mix inside this gorgeous stone.  It was discovered in 1947 in the Corrego Frio Mine in Brazil.  It got its name from the Brazilian geologist, Everisto Pena Scorza.  It is also associated with other minerals such as quartz, tourmaline, triphylite, and others like them.
