This is a plate of tightly massed acicular crystals of pretty blue-green brochantite from New Mexico, out of the collection of Carl Davis. Through a loupe, you can see that the crystals are actually gemmy little needles. Ask any collector who has been the Bingham - it is very difficult to find a specimen of brochantite this rich!
