For sale is a plate of rare decrespignyite (Y) from the Paratoo copper mine, Yunta, S.Aust. The plate is richly endowed on both sides as the pics show. Some areas show individual ball like decrespignyite, and others botryoidal form of the mineral. This mine is the type location for this mineral, and actually the only location in the world it has every been found. Decrespignyite (y) is a very rare copper rare-earth carbonate, and one of the very few minerals containing yitrium. Interestingly there are a couple of small areas of deep azurite like blue on this specimen that really deserve further study. Please remember our prices are in Australian dollars.
