Paakkonenite in Quartz
Cryo - Genie Mine (Beryl Pocket), Warner Hot Springs, San Diego Co., California, USA
Small Cabinet, 9.0 x 7.6 x 4.6 cm
Ex. Chris Korpi
A remarkable and to our knowledge unique specimen recovered in November 2003 while mining the "Beryl Pocket" at the CG. Chris was in attendance and saved this specimen for analysis. It features clearly visible 5 mm-8 mm crystals of Paakkonenite in a cluster about 1.5 cm deep in the quartz crystal. The quartz is complete and lustrous on the front side, though contacted on the back and sides. It displays well!
