Amazing specimen of clinoatacmite that shows several groups of pseudohexagonal crystals of really good size. With an intense and deep green color, brilliant and with some transparence, some twinned. They are disposed as isolated groups that stand out on a matrix of hyaline quartz crystals, with blue-green tones due to the chrysocolla and malachite they're are covering. An great an exceptional piece.
