Quartz, Chrysocolla

Specimen # 101926
Mineral: Quartz, Chrysocolla
Location: Quartz, Chrysocolla, Malachite, Lily Mine, Pisco Umay, Ica Dept., Peru
Size: 5.5 x 3.8 x 3.3 cm


With great colour, these glistening quartz crystals have grown over aqua-blue chrysocolla and dark green malachite. The quartz crystals are sharp and lustrous. In excellent condition, minor chipping at the periphery. Stands perfectly for display as photographed. This one is neat, the way the quartz crystal mounds correspond with underlying malachite.

The Lily Mine has ceased operations and I am told that any future re-opening and production is seen as unlikely.
