Braden Mine (Teniente Mine), El Teniente, Rancagua, Cachapoal Province, Libertador General Bernardo O'Higgins Region, Chile
Small Cabinet, 5.6 x 4.6 x 3.1 cm
A rich piece for the locality with dozens of lustrous, flattened crystals of the rare copper species Chalcophyllite. The surrounding malachite and the bit of azurite add to this exceptional piece. OLD material, only coming out of old collections today! Mostly we think of England or Tintic for the species, but in the past Chile was a contender as well
