Aurichalcite, Calcite
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Mun. de Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 9.3 x 7.9 x 4.6 cm
The Mina Ojuela has produced a new find of this beautiful and striking combination material. Glassy, transparent calcite rhombs to 2.6 cm across are richly and aesthetically strewn in a sculptural vug atop starkly contrasting, sturdy, banded, gossan matrix. The vug is lined with beautiful, robin's-egg blue aurichalcite needles. Some of the calcite rhombs are included with aurichalcite and some are not, which really adds to the attractiveness of this fine piece. A stunning new find.
