11-05. Sklodowskite #1.

Sklodowskite – early for Thanksgiving, but with a color scheme that would fit well on the family dinner table!

This mineral got its name after Marie Curie’s maiden name to honor her extensive work in the field of applied sciences and radioactivity.

The Sklodowskite a rare uranium mineral discovered by Belgian mineralogist Alfred Schoep in 1924. It belongs to the monoclinic group and has a B2 symmetry. Its bright yellow-green color is very vibrant and makes it a highly prized item in many mineral collections.
