This study presents the first structural report of kolbeckite, with the ideal formula ScPO4·2H2O (scandium phosphate dihydrate), based on single-crystal X-ray diffraction data. Kolbeckite belongs to the metavariscite mineral group, in which each PO4 tetra-hedron shares four vertices with four ScO4(H2O)2 octa-hedra and vice versa, forming a three-dimensional network of polyhedra.
