RM1572   Clinoatacamite with malachite, chrysocolla, calcite and quartz

Lily Mine, Pisco Umay, Ica, Perú

Very rich group of sharp clinoatacamite crystals, many of them isolated, very well defined faces and edges, interpenetrated, with pseudohexagonal and octahedral forms. Very brilliant and with some transparence. They are disposed on a matrix formed by brilliant quartz covering aggregates of deep green malachite crystals and chrysocolla. Peppered with scalenohedral crystals of calcite. A very aesthetic and interesting specimen of good size. I like Peruvian clinotacamite...

Size: 7.5 x 6.5 x 5.0 cm.
Main crystal: 0.7 x 0.5 cm.
Found in 2016.
