Sky blue tufts of acicular aurichalcite on limonite are in turn covered by a .2 cm thick, glassy coating of calcite. This has turned the underlying aurichalcite color to a rich sea foam. This is an extremely aesthetic specimen. INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL In PERSON, like a wave of artificial neon blue color!
