Aurichalcite With Calcite
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 9.1 x 4.5 x 3.1 cm
Pastel blue, fibrous aurichalcite covers its limonite matrix. Situated on top is a cluster of lustrous and translucent, equant, rhombs of calcite, to 1.25 cm. Differential inclusions of fibrous, aurichalcite have resulted in some rhombs having a rich, blue color, others ahving a pastel blue color. Unusual in this pocket!
