Chrysocolla fingers with Quartz coatings
stock #13.1-176
Ray Mine, Ray District, Dripping Springs Mountain, Pinal county
Arizona, United States
3.6 x 2.1 x 1.2 CM (miniature)
price: $550
Late Summer 2021

A cluster of Chrysocolla "fingers" with perfect, undamaged tips from the Ray Mine,(Arizona, USA). Sometimes called stalactites, that is not technically correct as there is no central canal or hole in the middle. This has excellent turquoise color and a pearly luster. Close exam shows the thin layer of Quartz that is like a skin over the Chrysocolla. It is very hard to find such perfect examples with all the fingers intact. A colorful and classic USA copper specie.

11.7 x 6.3 x 4.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $780
Late Summer 2021

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 killer thumbnail of stalactitic Chrysocolla. The fingers are all slender, elongated and have thing overgrowths of transparent Quartz.
