ex. Al Ordway
This little specimen is actually a VERY fine specimen, of importance because this locality produced best of species and this is as good a specimen as you can reasonably expect to see for sale. It is extraordinarily rich - there is more material on this piece than on the others I have seen over the years, combined. It was obtained by Al in 2000 from Jim Bratt, a former mining engineer at this mine before its closing, known for having saved numerous good rarities from the crushers.
1.7 x 1.7 x 1.4 cm. Lindgrenite is a copper molybdate and this fine thumbnail is from the Type Locality, the Chuquicamata Mine of Chile. Lustrous and gemmy, forest-green lindgrenite blades richly fill a vug in quartz matrix, that is lined with an unknown, complimentary yellow mineral. Ex. Carl Davis Collection.
