Specimen # 101382
Mineral: Atacamite, Chrysocolla
Location: Atacamite, Chrysocolla, Lily Mine, Pisco Umay, Ica Dept., Peru

This piece features deep green, lustrous atacamite crystals on contrasting pale blue chrysocolla. The atacamite crystals are sharp with excellent terminations. Many of the smaller atacamite crystals are transparent, so the green colour glows under the lights. In excellent condition, a few incomplete dark crystals low on the piece, and the main area of this one is super. Sits perfectly for display as photographed. An aesthetic, colourful atacamite specimen.
