Just as Peter Megaw described in the Mineralogical Record, Vol.34, # 5 on pages 81 and 82, This specimen began life as a botryoidal crust of malachite on limonite. A later generation of gemmy, lustrous, rich, teal colored, rosasite grew over the malachite. On top of the rosasite are clusters of small, gemmy, hemimorphite crystals. I particularly like the sculptural quality of the specimen. Formerly in the collection of Arizona dealer, Evan Jones, and before him, Monnie Speck of Phoenix. Circa 1950
