Aurichalcite, Calcite
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Mun. de Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Cabinet, 10.0 x 8.0 x 3.7 cm
The Mina Ojuela has produced a new find of this beautiful and striking combination material. Beautiful, soft-to-the-touch, like felt, robin's-egg blue aurichalcite needles richly line a vug atop a sculptural wedge of sturdy gossan matrix. A few, glassy, transparent calcite rhombs are scattered about and are included with aurichalcite.
