Calcite, Chrysocolla, Atacamite

Specimen # 101383
Mineral: Calcite, Chrysocolla, Atacamite
Location: Calcite, Atacamite, Chrysocolla, Lily Mine, Pisco Umay, Ica Dept., Peru
Size: 6.4 x 5.7 x 3.0 cm


This is a beautiful combination of minerals. Colourless glassy calcite crystals, accompanied by a few small deep green atacamite crystals are on sparkling quartz crystals which, in turn, are on blue chrysocolla. The blue of the chrysocolla is a striking aqua colour, deeper than the more typical pale blue we see with the atacamites from the Lily Mine. In excellent condition, no damage other than tiny cleaved spots among the calcites that are hard to see. Aesthetic colourful and sparkling specimen.
