HOLD Chrysocolla ps after Malachite after Azurite with Wulfenite
stock #HOLD 17.1-090
Whim Creek Copper Mine, Whim Creek, Roebourne Shire
Western Australia, Australia
3.4 x 2.9 x 1.9 CM (miniature)
price: $740


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.

Chrysocolla Pseudo after Malachite after Azurite
stock #20-FC-025-(9121)
Whim Creek Copper Mine, Whim Creek, Roebourne Shire
Western Australia, Australia
6.8 x 5.2 x 4.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $420
Spring 2020

A super example of this classic Pseudomorph with excellent sharp form and intense blue-green color. The Chrysocolla has completely replaced the Malachite which had replaced rosettes of Azurite. These rosettes are perfectly preserved. As a bonus the matrix on this is heavily sprinkled with small, gem clear Wulfenite crystals. The last find of this habit was in 1985, the mine is long closed and no more are to be had. These Chrysocolla rosettes have excellent sharp detail, waxy luster and the incredible color. Choice.
