Wavellite
La Caridad Mine, La Caridad, Nacozari de Garcia Municipality
Sonora, Mexico
8.7 x 3.6 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $140
Early summer 2021

A nearly pure Wavellite specimen with minimal matrix, the Wavellite is in fibrous layers surrounding an open vug. The vug surface is a lemon-yellow carpet of botryoidal Wavellite that with good lighting has a wet-look luster. An unusual style and habit that is unlike most any other Wavellite in the entire world. From long ago finds at the La Caridad Mine, we have not seen any new material available for decades, only from older collections like this piece.
