Chrysocolla (drusy) with Malachite
Inca De Oro, Chanaral
Atacama Region, Chile
7.1 x 3.7 x 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $700


Sparkling blue-green masses of Chrysocolla that has replaced earlier primary Malachite crystals. The entire surface is covered with tiny Quartz crystals that gives the drusy sparkle effect. Some very small bits of Malachite are still present but mostly this is all Chrysocolla. Some of the forms are fingers or stalactites in clusters, one of which has the look of a tree from the right angle. In excellent condition the color and form on this piece is outstanding. This locality has not produced any Chrysocolla for several years now. These replacements are a modern classic and in person this one is highly esthetic, far better than typical.
