A large specimen of this rare mineral, and one of the few specimens we found when we were on the Taseq slopes in july 2008. The Epididymite crystals (to 2,5cm large!) are, as usual, intergrown in the matrix and form twinned aggregates of thick white crystals. The Epididymite has some small embedded brown translucent Pyrochlore crystals. For more info, see Mindat (under MW and LW-UV a corner of the specimen fluoresces orange), and see our Greenland pictures and video's.
