||Conichalcite with Calcite
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
6 x 4.3 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
This is about as pretty as Conichalcite gets ! The best Mapimi specimens are the worlds finest when they show the rich wet-luster deep green. This piece is of that quality and has great coverage as well which is very uncommon. Super-brilliant Emerald color and with some sharp calcite scalenohedrons for added contrast, this one is striking. Other than some outer edge damage this is undamaged and a worthy specimen.
