- Hemimorphite, Aurichalcite, Wulfenite
- Cabinet, 12.9 x 10.3 x 3.4 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
A large combo specimen from the legendary 79 Mine - not sure if this is old material or a specimen from the trickle of new stuff from the past few years from re-mining efforts there. What you have is a layer of hemimorphite with a delicate pale blue color from zinc content (which gives Kelly Mine smithsonite a similar hue), and on top of this, little puffballs of blue-green aurichalcite. A little wulfenite crystal can be seen in the close-up!
