Mineral Specimen #6674 Chyrosocall, Quartz, Tenorite
Ray Mine, Pinal Co., Arizona
11.2 x 7.1 x 4.1 cm
4.4 x 2.8 x 1.6 in
Ex. Norm Woods
Primarily a massive specimen composed of intermixed Tenorite, Chrysocolla and Quartz (and perhaps a little Malachite). Where things get interesting are the numerous vugs in the specimen. The largest is lined with bright blue Chrysocolla. In another vug, the Chrysocolla is covered with Chalcedony Quartz which had almost formed into crystals. The best vug, is a small one with sparkly druze Quartz covering the Chrysocolla.
Condition: Fairly Good
Flaws: The specimen is composed primarily of massive material with the majority of the surfaces being the result of fracturing. The matrix is brittle and small pieces, on occasion, can fall off when being handled.
