RM2080   Kinoite and Hydroxyapophyllite-(K)

Christmas Mine, Dripping Spring Mts., Christmas, Gila Co., Arizona, United States

Very aesthetic specimen of kinoite from this famous American mine. It is a druse formed by small crystals of this rare silicate of calcium and copper, very characteristic of this mine, which are partially covered by brilliant and transparent crystals of Hydroxyapophyllite-(K). We also observe the kinoite as darker globular aggregates. Pure aesthetics and brightness. The best kinoites came out for a short time in the 70s from this Arizona mine, and specimens show up only rarely on the market.


Size: 7.3 x 5.5 x 4.8 cm.
Found in ±1975.

These zinc carbonate crystals show a polysynthetic growths of rhombohedrons, color between white to colorless, with a strong pearlescent luster and forming botryoidal aggregates. They are accompanied by blue-green rosasite, in spherical aggregates.
This specimen
is interesting for different reasons. The accompanying old label belongs to the Antigua Casa (former house) Soler Pujol of Barcelona, ​​known for its collections relating to the natural history sciences.
