Description

Beautiful specimen of bluish chrysocolla with blue aurichalcite. The variations in color tones of blue, indicate a difference in composition so there have to be a few more minerals related to chrysocolla in here. As a bonus the back hosts greenish botryoidal smithsonite with good luster and contrast with the blues!
