Clinoatacamite - Sold
- Lily mine
- Ica Region
- 10.2 by 6.6 by 1.4 cm – Cabinet specimen (over 10 cm)
Clinoatacamite here forms fishtail twins, in this case to 5 mm long. There are a few crystals showing microchipping, which may be from contact with the other side of the vein. One of the edges shows a bit of saw cutting, but this does not change the high impact of the display quality of the specimen. 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.
