Item Description

The famous Mina Ojuela has produced a NEW find of this beautiful and striking combination material. Glassy, transparent, calcite rhombs to 1.8 cm across richly and aesthetically line a sculpural vug in starkly contrasting, sturdy, gossan matrix. Portions of the calcite rhombs are included with vivid aurichalcite and some are not, which really adds to the attractiveness of this fine piece. The dramatic, overall quality of this piece is very minimally impacted by the periphery wear around the edges of the vug. A stunning new find. And this fine piece displays well from two views.
