Szenicsite, Powellite
Jardinera No. 1 Mine, Inca de Oro, Chanaral Province, Atacama Region, Chile
Toenail, 2.8 x 2.8 x 1.5 cm
Two lovely blades of deep green Szenicsite, with the superb adamantine luster that is so classic for this species. This copper molybdate is very rare, with one and only one find ever. Adding to the quality is the gemmy green-tinted gemmy (cuprian) powellite along one side of the specimen.
