Aurichalcite With Smithsonite
Kelly Mine, Magdalena, Socorro County, New Mexico, USA
Miniature, 5.3 x 2.7 x 2.2 cm
This is one of the nicest aurichalcite specimens I have seen from Kelly. It is composed of a series of parallel growth, stalactitic botryoids, to 2.0 cm in length, with luster, and a wonderful rich, blue green color. The characteristic defining the location, is the single, lustrous, translucent, sky blue, rice grain crystal of smithsonite, measuring .6 cm across. Super!
