Lily Mine, Pisco Umay, Ica Department, Peru
Small Cabinet, 6.4 x 4.6 x 4.0 cm
Nestled aesthetically in a drusy quartz vug infused with very minor chrysocolla for color of a pastel blue, is a cluster of lustrous, deep-green atacamite crystals, reaching 2.9 cm in length. Lovely! In person, this has so much reflectivity that it is hard to focus on the crystal edges, and the luster is phenomenal. A gorgeous specimen, with "flash" and a very long and significant atacamite crystal for the find.
