Cabinet, 15.4 x 8.4 x 7.8 cm
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
A sculpturally pleasing, undulating, velvety, carpet of botryoidal, intensely colored blue-green rosasite has almost totally smothered its host limonite matrix and it looks alive and as if it is flowing into the central crevasse. The rosasite shows interesting color variegation. The valley lows in the middle are covered in clusters of sparkling, glassy and gemmy, calcite rhombs, to 7 mm across. A compelling specimen!
