Volborthite ?


Recommended Posts

I found some of this yesterday. Comes from west/central Arizona. My best guess is it is Volborthite. It appears to only form between cracks and not a solid vein within the host rock. Small crystal formations. I was first thinking Dioptase or Epidote but from all the pictures I see of Volborthite I am leaning more that way. Your thoughts?
