A beautiful and large plate of sparkling, hair-like aurichalcite crystals, richly covering a layered piece of matrix. Although the mineral is well known from the locality, large plates like this are uncommon. Purchased in 1980 at the Tucson show, according to his notes. Ex. Harold Urish Collection.
