Spangolite, Quartz
Small Cabinet, 6.5 x 5.7 x 2.8 cm
Mex-Tex Mine, Bingham, Hansonburg District, Socorro Co., New Mexico, USA
A fine, sculptural specimen of two, distinctive, separate vugs in quartz richly lined with sparkly, blue-green spangolite microcrystals from the well-known Mex-Tex Mine of Bingham, New Mexico. The vertical septae separating the two vugs is spectacular and the golden-yellow, iron oxide-coated quartz crystals are a superb accent to the blue-green spangolite. The Mex-Tex is adajcent to the famous Blanchard Mine.
