The quartz-on-chrysocollas from Arizona have always been prized by collectors, for their beautiful color and the sheen given them by the overlying quartz. When they form actual stalactites, such as in the case of this specimen, they are very highly sought-after. This is such an elegant mini -- with three spires rising dramatically side-by-side. They are perfect and undamaged - with gorgeous robins-egg blue color.
