Aurichalcite in Calcite
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Miniature, 3.5 x 2.9 x 2.5 cm
Jauntily perched on smaller crystals as well as limonite matrix, is a large, glassy and translucent rhomb of calcite, measuring 2.3 cm across. It has been transformed to a rich teal color by fibrous aurichalcite investing and enriching it. Superb miniature! The large crystal is very dramatic, in particular.
