Aurichalcite, Calcite
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Mun. de Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 9.0 x 8.0 x 6.5 cm
The Mina Ojuela has produced a new find of this beautiful and striking combination material. Glassy, transparent calcite rhombs to 1.8 cm across are richly and aesthetically strewn in a sculptural vug in starkly contrasting, sturdy gossan matrix. The vug is lined with beautiful, robin's-egg-blue aurichalcite. Some of the calcite rhombs are included with aurichalcite and some are not, which really adds to the attractiveness of this fine piece.
