Copper Queen Mine (Halero Mine), Queen Hill, Bisbee, Warren District, Mule Mts, Cochise Co., Arizona, USA
Small Cabinet, 5.6 x 4.8 x 3.4 cm
Chalcoalumite is a rare copper, aluminum sulfate and the historic Copper Queen Mine is the type locality. This sculptural specimen has vugs on the front and back lined with pretty, powder-blue, bubbly, botryoidal chalcoalumite. Extremely rich and undoubtedly old material, dating from the late 1800s-early 1900s, but no proof. Ex. Dennis Mullane Bisbee Collection.
