Miniature, 4.9 x 3.5 x 2.4 cm
79 Mine (79th Mine; Seventy-Nine Mine; Seventy-Nine property; McHur prospect), Chilito, Hayden area, Banner District, Dripping Spring Mts, Gila Co., Arizona, USA

This EXCELLENT old-timer hemimorphite from the classic 79 Mine was acquired by Dave Stoudt eighteen years ago at the Denver Show. These are beautiful light turquoise-blue botryoids with a silky surface, on a dark limonitic matrix that shows through in places to provide a pleasing contrast.
