Quartz, Chrysocolla

Specimen # 101925
Mineral: Quartz, Chrysocolla
Location: Quartz, Chrysocolla, Malachite, Lily Mine, Pisco Umay, Ica Dept., Peru
Size: 8.6 x 5.2 x 4.1 cm


A beautiful, colourful specimen, this is a bed of sparkling quartz crystals overgrowing aqua-blue chrysocolla and dark green malachite. The quartz crystals are sharp and lustrous. In excellent condition, a couple of minor chips. A really nice, aesthetic piece with great colour.

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