Aurichalcite, Calcite
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Mun. de Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 6.5 x 6.2 x 3.8 cm
The Mina Ojuela has produced a new find of this beautiful and striking combination material. Glassy, transparent calcite rhombs to 1.4 cm across are richly and aesthetically strewn across the starkly contrasting, sturdy, gossan matrix. The matrix is nearly covered 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.
