Chrysocolla - Stalactitic with Quartz coatings
Ball Park Bench, Ray Mine, Scott Mountain, Pinal County
Arizona, United States
3.4 x 1.8 x 1.3 CM (thumbnail)
price: $1500
Early summer 2021

A killer thumbnail of stalactitic Chrysocolla. The fingers are all slender, elongated and have thing overgrowths of transparent Quartz. The color is vivid though the Quartz layer and when backlit the piece glows an intense blue. From a recently rediscovered old stock of the 1978 find at the Ray Mine, this is a choice example of a quality rarely available. A classic for Arizona and the USA this piece is from the Ball Park Bench find. The Quartz is a clear transparent overgrowth that has a glassy luster. In incredible, fine condition which is remarkable for these slender and delicate growths. Of the 12 fingers here there is only one tip that is incomplete and one finger on the backside is contacted. Neither of those is visible in normal display, this is a super esthetic US classic thumb.
