Centennial Eureka Mine (Blue Rock), Tintic District, East Tintic Mts, Juab Co., Utah, USA
Small Cabinet, 8.5 x 5.4 x 4.4 cm
An old-time, very rich and fine olivenite specimen from the historic Tintic District of Utah. Sparkly, dark olive-green olivenite crystals to 6 mm fill numerous small vugs on all sides and are nicely complimented by the lighter malachite on this specimen. Ex. John Legro Collection, a prominent late 19th century East Coast collector. Easily 100 years old. Heavy for its size, this piece is essentially solid olivenite.
