Aurichalcite, Calcite
Kelly Mine, Magdalena District, Socorro Co., New Mexico, USA
Cabinet, 13.0 x 8.0 x 6.0 cm
A GORGEOUS and unusually LARGE example of this classic material from the Kelly! The piece is bright and glistening (now that it is properly cleaned!), all around, and with only trivial damage. It is nearly pristine, in fact. One side is rich with calcite, strating white at the top and grading to bluish on the center and edges where more hevily included. The reverse side shows rich aurichalcite aplenty, with scattered calcite crystals in crevasses that tend to be more richly included than those on the front side. A very rare find, in this quality and size range! 13 x 8 x 6 cm
