Aurichalcite Inclusions In Calcite Crystals
Two well-formed rhombs of Calcite, to 1.75 cm across, which are heavily invested with fibrous Aurichalcite, site nicely in this vug. The crystals are glassy and translucent to transparent, with an exceptional teal color. Since the rhombs are large, showy, and colorful, this specimen exhibits all the characteristics of a fine competition level specimen.
