Rosasite
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
6.8 x 5.7 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $260
new year 2021

A flat matrix with one face well covered with botryoidal Rosasite balls. Excellent velvet luster and sheen, the color grades from a dark green to a lighter blue green. This is the old style of Rosasite from the 1960's the matrix is a soft gossan but is quite stable. The color and luster of a good Rosasite should look like this. This locality at one time produced lots of this distinctive Copper specie and some small finds still pop up, it has made these an excellent value for such an esthetic mineral.
