Clinoatacamite - Sold

Clinoatacamite crystals to 1.0 cm have formed a tight cluster of crystals on a chrysocolla and limonite matrix. The 2 cm tall cluster protrudes from the center of matrix, making for an excellent display. This is the sort of mineral specimen seen in the systematic display of a national museum that generates awe in the future generations of mineral collectors. While the Lily mine has produced ore for years, perhaps two decades, this occurrence of clinoatacamite is limited. This is a 'best of species' find and this specimen ranks very highly in the group.
