Mammoth Mine (Mammoth shaft), Tintic District, East Tintic Mts, Juab Co., Utah, USA
Small Cabinet, 5.3 x 3.5 x 2.9 cm
A CLASSIC, OLD-TIME and showy specimen of lustrous, curved, indigo-blue/turquoise clinoclase plates RICHLY lining both sides of a vug on matrix from the famous Tintic District of Utah. This is a HIGHLY REPRESENTATIVE old-timer of the species and locality, and for its richness quite important despite the slight contacting/bruising. Ex. Don Belsher Collection. The old card says that this piece was obtained in a trade in 1946 (by the previous owner before Belsher) ! While not pristine, the piece has a lot of color impact and historical significance.
