Smithsonite on Aurichalcite
Kelly Mine, Magdelena, Socorro County, New Mexico, USA
Miniature, 3.6 x 2.6 x 1.6 cm
The highly sought-after combination from the world-famous Kelly Mine in New Mexico. Lustrous light blue smithsonite on top of rich aurichalcite gives these specimens a beauty all their own. No longer available from the mine, these are getting harder and harder to find. This one is darned near unique for the balance and aesthetics of the association!
