This exceptional specimen consists of radiating sprays of fine crystals of blue chrysocolla pseudomorphing an unknown mineral, probably azurite, but this is contentious. What is not contentious is the quality of this piece! I have to comment that the accurate color of these crystals is blue, with no real green component, sorry the camera just would not get it correct, the first pic is closest to accurate! Superb and aesthetic radiating sprays from this one-time find in the September 2, 1976. See Mineralogical Record article Arizona issue. This is ex Brian England collection specimen. (see some of Brian’s specimen in the coming Min Record, Australian collectors supplement). Classic pseudomorph, please compare our prices to similar pieces available on Minfind. Remember our prices are in RAPIDLY depreciating Australian dollars. USD$0.56 is equal to AUD$1.00!
