A superb, rich, colorful miniature with unusually strongly-colored aurichalcite. This is from the classic 79 Mine, known also for its wulfenites and lead minerals. It probably dates to the 1950s-1960s and came from the Fred Burr collection to Harold Michel (with label) in 1985, and then to Dave Stoudt when that collection was sold in 2013 by Dave Bunk. While specimens are widely seen on the market in lesser quality, this is a stunning color and richness for the material, not often seen. It is also a full miniature size.
