Aurichalcite in Calcite
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 8.8 x 4.3 x 4.0 cm
Perched high on limonite matrix is a plate of intergrown, lustrous and translucent, calcite rhombs, to 1.4 cm across. Differential inclusions of fibrous aurichalcite heve given the crystals a variegated, blue coloration. It has some very minor damage and wear on the edges, mostly to lower crystals, but is quite pretty and appealing overall.
