Aurichalcite, Calcite
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Mun. de Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Cabinet, 13.4 x 11.4 x 3.8 cm
An uncommon CABINET plate of bright, velvety, acicular aurichalcite on a matrix of limonite, with wonderful sea-foam green color. In one area are some small translucent calcite rhombs included with aurichalcite, so that they have picked up its color. A very rich and pretty Mapimi specimen! This is old material, seldom seen, and a very rich and large example at that.
