Aurichalcite in Calcite
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Miniature, 3.5 x 3.0 x 1.25 cm
A small miniature with huge impact, featuring two sharp, tabular rhombs of calcite to 3 cm across are heavily invested with a rich blue, fibrous aurichalcite.The crystals are lustrous and translucent except for one more transparent and colorless, gemmy corner. Large, elegant crystals for this find....and color! This is a stunning specimen, perhaps not for the lover of matrix pieces, fine nonetheless and worth it just for the unique, unearthly color.
