Description:

Sklodowskite has only been found in Greece from this pocket and it is the only example of a nicely crystallized uranium mineral from Greece. A small percentage of the sklodowskites were on or in, ram's horn gypsum. There are the tip-top of the find. I am offering a small selection of some fine examples of this beautiful and extremely rare combination. Other uranium minerals were also associated so it is possible that they are co-existing with the sklodowskite on some of these specimens. Here is a highly aesthetic example!
