Crystallized Azurite rosettes replaced by Malachite which is partly to fully replaced by Chrysocolla. A modern classic find from Whim Creek, this is an especially choice specimen with a stout stalactitic Goethite matrix. A few small Wulfenite crystals are also noted on the matrix as are more recent tiny balls of Malachite. In fine condition. The rosettes vary in color from blue-green to green and are in both clusters and isolated balls. All the rosettes display very good crystal forms that faithfully show the original Azurite structures. These were found over 30 years ago and often in cabinet sized specimens. A modern classic.
A superb example of this unique find that is now considered a classic. Esthetic free standing main crystal is a zoned replacement of Chrysocolla after Malachite which had previously replaced the Azurite crystal. The crystal itself and the small matrix is also dusted with tiny, gem clear yellow to orange Wulfenites which adds a nice sparkle. In fine condition as seen, these are modern classics and one of the treasures for Copper secondary collectors that are not often available and very rarely as nicely composed as this.
