Sklodowskite from Greece has only been found once, in this pocket, in 2016. I had the luck to have bought a big portion of the find and kept this one for my collection. When it comes to rare minerals, I prefer to own a nice, small but excellent example of each rare species instead of chunky and large ugly examples. Here is a small, rare beauty with an excellent spherical aggregate of thin sklodowskite crystals on gypsum! Nice color and contrast too!
