Conichalcite, Calcite
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Mun. de Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 6.7 x 5.0 x 4.8 cm
Sparkly, grass-green conichalcite microcrystals beautifully accented with glassy, colorless calcite crystals cover both sides of the crest of the very lightweight, bubbly, botryoidal limonite matrix on this very striking and colorful specimen from the Mina Ojuela. This fine piece probably dates to the 1970s finds at this historic locale. Ex. Consie Prince Collection.
