Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Mun. de Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 6.0 x 3.6 x 2.8 cm
A STRIKING, REALLY GOOD and beautiful mounded specimen of radial clusters of lustrous, chatoyant, turquoise-blue aurichalcite blades on contrasting gossan matrix from the famous Mina Ojuela of Mexico. Pieces of this quality came out in the mid-1960s, with none since. RARELY on the market and much in demand. This is a signature species from the Ojuela Mine, along with legrandite and adamite, and this CHOICE material from the George Elling Collection.
