Copper, Aragonite
Corocoro, Pacajes Province, La Paz Department, Bolivia
Thumbnail, 1.2 x 1.2 x 1.0 cm
Here is a wonderful thumbnail size specimen of the famous pseudomorphs of Copper after Aragonite from Corocoro. These floater specimens are well known from Bolivia for their great form and color, and this piece has the classic and unique form that has made these pieces some of the most well known and highly sought after pseudomorphs around. Here we have a beautiful little specimen of the highly sought after "disco ball" habit pieces, which only are found in about 5% of the specimens from Corocoro. This specimen is a very fine example of this material. There hasn't been any significant amount of these specimens on the market in approximately 25 years, and they are often only found in old collections.
