A knobby growth of light blue-green Hemimorphite that has encrusted the matrix on all sides. The surface is fully covered by small sparkling crystals which are translucent and quite lustrous.

Bright green rounded crystals of Smithsonite are clustered on botryoidal mounds over the face of this matrix. Wet luster and fine form with a distinctive hue, a choice older 79 Mine Specimen. This has zones of accicular Aurichalcite crystals and Calcite that add contrast and interest. In excellent condition and a very colorful Arizona Smithsonite. Even better in person.

Aurichalcite with Hemimorphite

79 Mine, Hayden, Banner District, Gila County
Arizona, United States
4.7 x 4 x 3.8 CM (miniature)
price: $1100
Dec 2018

An outstanding Copper specondary specimen, a miniature Aurichalcite from the famed 79 Mine. The condition is exceptional and the display impact is also top notch. Some of the best Aurichalcites ever found came from this small mine years ago but are not often available in this quality. In incredible undamaged condition, remarkable for such a delicate specimen. A few small clear balls of radiating Hemimorphites add a nice contrast too. Brilliant color and luster give this a great display impact much bigger than the size. Really far better in person.
