RM1126   Chrysocolla with quartz

Lily mine, Pisco Umay, Ica, Perú

This good size specimen is covered by botryoidal aggregates of chrysocolla, showing an intense blue turquoise, with greenish reflections and excellent brightness. On the crisocola we can observe small crystals of hyaline quartz, some doubly terminated, those give to the specimen a particular aesthetics. In Perú they named these samples as Blue Andean Opal.

Size: 8.3 x 6.2 x 4.3 cm.
