A fine antlerite from Brushy Park station, Qld. Antlerite, which could be considered quite uncommon,  is a greenish hydrous copper sulfate, this features interesting group of bright green lobe type distorted crystals, that have formed as a plate of parallel crystals, with some associated residual reddish clay. The form is quite unusual, reminding me somewhat of a few azurite groups I have seen.

The form is quite unusual, reminding me somewhat of a few azurite groups I have seen. This is a very good sized specimen for the species!  Antlerite in collector quality specimens is very uncommon from Australia, this find of 10 years ago, set a new standard for the species in Australia! This specimen has a flashing surface that is not captured adequately in the pics! Please remember our prices are in Australian dollars, AUD$1.00 is equal to approx USD$0.60.
