Linarite, Caledonite
Blue Bell claims (Hard Luck claims), Baker area, San Bernardino Co., California, USA
Small Cabinet, 6.6 x 4.0 x 3.7 cm
An old-time, rich and beautiful combination specimen from an uncommon California locale for the species - the Blue Bell Claims near Baker, San Bernardino County. Highly lustrous, azure-blue, acicular linarite crystals and sparkly, teal-blue caledonite microcrystals richly and attractively cover four sides of the massive sulfide matrix. The two old labels identify the piece as being from Arizona, but it actually from California. Ex. Philadelphia Academy of Sciences Collection. Weighs 169 grams.
