Clinoatacamite, Quartz

Specimen # 101923
Mineral: Clinoatacamite, Quartz
Location: Clinoatacamite, Quartz, Lily Mine, Pisco Umay, Ica Dept., Peru
Size: 4.9 x 3.5 x 3.5 cm


A vug filled with bright sparkling quartz crystals hosts a beautiful group of intergrown clinoatacamite crystals. The clinoatacamite cluster is 0.4 cm across, but because of the setting on the quartz crystals, it displays very nicely despite its small size. Some of the quartz crystals have an aqua-coloured tint due to chrysocolla. In excellent condition – no damage – and sits perfectly for display as photographed. An attractive specimen of this uncommon mineral.
