This specimen was originally labeled as being Bisbeeite. There are two problems with this. First, Bisbeeite is a discredited species and is now considered a synonym of Chrysocolla or in some cases, Plancheite. Second, Bisbeeite has never been described in the literature for the location. The color is indicative of Chrysocolla and the structure of the radiating, needle like crystals is that of Malachite both of which are found at the location. There are also, a few, scattered micro crystals of Dioptase for which the location is well known.

Condition: Excellent

Flaws: Nothing Appreciable
