Description: Scorodite is a relatively common secondary mineral (in gossans worldwide) resulting from the oxidation of Arsenopyrite (FeAsS), or other arsenic-bearing mineral species. Scorodite was named from the Greek ‘scorodion’ - meaning ‘garlicky’, because when is heated it smells of garlic - which gives it the name.
