Calcite, Malachite
Small Cabinet, 6.6 x 4.7 x 4.6 cm
Mun. de Concepcion del Oro, Zacatecas, Mexico
The camera could not pick it up well because it is very subtle, but this cluster of calcite crystals has a pretty, light pastel green color thrown off by these little inclusions of malachite peppered through the inside of the crystals. From the classic Zacatecas locality, known for its azurites (so it is not surprising to see the malachite association here). From the collection of noted California collector Charles Hansen.
