Reference: numerous small specimens have been found both in rock and slag vesicles of light blue silky sprays and tuffs that i long supposed to be aurichalcite. but recently jason Smith had this material analyzed (consult him for details) and determined it is serpierite. This makes more sense anyway given sulfate associates. Steve Adams
