Chuquicamata Mine, Chuquicamata District, Calama, El Loa Province, Antofagasta Region, Chile
Cabinet, 12.0 x 9.0 x 5.0 cm
An extraordinarily RICH specimen featuring bright green CRYSTALS of antlerite almost completely covering a large matrix plate. The crystals range to 5mm, though most are smaller...all are gemmy and lustrous. This is a STUNNING example of the species that also features crystals of awesome quality! Acquired from Ward's Science Establishment. This locality is now defunct and important specimens are becoming harder to find. Lage cabinet pieces of this caliber...they are simply unobtainable. 12 x 9 x 5 cm
