Atacamite, Chrysocolla

Atacamite, Chrysocolla

Specimen # 101378
Mineral: Atacamite, Chrysocolla
Location: Lily Mine, Pisco Umay, Ica Dept., Peru
Size: 10.4 x 10.0 x 3.7 cm
Price: $160.00 CAD

Quantity:

These are razor-sharp, lustrous, dark green atacamite crystals with mirror-bright terminations, on a matrix covered by pale blue chrysocolla. (Field of view in this first photo is 1.5 cm). The crystals are blockier than the acicular atacamite one sees more often - these are great orthorhomic prisms. In very good condition, a number of perfect crystals, some incomplete ones. Nice contrast with the chrysocolla and glossy colourless calcite crystals in association. The free-standing atacamite crystals on this one are particularly fine for the species.
