Yukon Phosphates, Maricite

Maricite is another of the phosphate minerals that occurs in the unique nodules of the Big Fish River area. It often is the sole content of a nodule, while other times it is associated with other minerals. It does not occur in sharp crystals but as radiating masses of tightly packed, milky white to grey-blue crystals, often associated with bluish vivianite or metavivianite. Here are a number of excellent examples.
