Aurichalcite, Calcite
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Mun. de Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 6.4 x 5.3 x 3.1 cm
The Mina Ojuela has produced a new find of this beautiful and striking combination material. The large vug is filled with beautiful, scintillating soft-to-the-touch, felt-like, robin's-egg blue aurichalcite needles and rests on a sculptural, sturdy, ship-shaped, gossan matrix. A few, small aurichalcite-included calcite rhombs are scattered about. A stunning new find.
