Quartz, Aragonite, Chrysocolla
Bagdad, Eureka District, Yavapai Co., Arizona, USA
Cabinet, 13.2 x 12.9 x 6.3 cm
This is a rare complete pocket from the old Bagdad locality with an amazing "scene" inside: tiny crystals of quartz have completely replaced the former aragonite crystals, but retaining the aragonite form, which you can clearly see in the spiky crystals. These pseudomorphs rise from a bed of quartz over a layer of massive green chrysocolla.
