La Farola Mine, Cerro Pintado, Las Pintadas district, Tierra Amarilla, Copiapo Province, Atacama Region, Chile
Large Cabinet, 22.0 x 21.3 x 8.5 cm
This is undoubtedly one of the finest and largest Atacamites Ive ever seen from this great Chilean locality. A very large, highly displayable large cabinet specimen consisting of several deep green, sparkling, flattened "sprays" of Atacamite measuring up to 2.2 cm which are associated with micro green Olivenite, bluish-green Pseudomalachite and darker bluish-green Chrysocolla. One could spend a great deal of time revelling at this specimen under the microscope. A great, colorful and large piece of a rather uncommon species! 22.0 x 21.3 x 8.5cm
