Sulfur Hole area

07723420015576475747531.jpg
Sulphur Hole, Calico, Calico District, Calico Mts, San Bernardino Co., California, USA

In 2019 the Sulfur Hole was completely covered by debris from the rock layers higher up. Looks more like a mound than a hole. However, some good sulfates have been found from the hydrothermal chimney directly above the hole location, including the first arsenate from the locality, scorodite.

Field of View: 0.84 mm

The photo shows clear crystals of bodieite with subadamantine luster. The apparent coloration comes from the green richelsdorfite fingers behind the crystals.
This is one of 5 cotype specimens deposited at Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. Collected by MarekC in 2017. Photographed by Tony Kampf at the Museum, posted with permission.
