Wavellite is widely known for its green radial crystal formations that for many years have been referred to as "cat's-eye" by local collectors. It is often found as green crystals that can vary in color intensity, ranging from dark emerald green to pale green depending on conditions during formation. While it may be best known for its spherical radiating crystal formations, it has also been found as botryoidal crusts and stalactitic deposits. Wavellite is most commonly found within cracks of aluminum-rich metamorphic rock and phosphate deposits.
Wavellite is a phosphate mineral with the chemical formula Al3(PO4)2(OH)3·5H2O.
Washington state has now joined over a dozen other states to put in place “shelter in place” or “stay at home” orders. While we agree this is the correct course of action, it will have a substantial impact on our business. It effectively shuts down much of our company for several weeks.
We will continue taking orders on our website and we will have a single staff member at our warehouse to facilitate shipping of these new orders. Depending on the order volume this may mean that we do experience some shipping delays, particularly with large or fragile items that require more packaging time.
These shutdowns are particularly devastating to all small businesses who don’t have significant cash reserves and rely on constant cash flow to pay their fixed expenses (payroll, rent, loan payments, etc) We hope that you will continue to support us and satisfy your fossil fix during these trying times.
