Item Description

A striking and colorful combination specimen from the famous Mina Ojuela. Sturdy gossan matrix beautifully frames a sculptural vug filled with sparkly, rich apple-green bubbly and knobby conichalcite. A band and small cluster of lustrous calcite crystals is a very nice accent. The conichalcite covered vug is in super shape. This fine piece probably dates to the 1970s finds at this historic locale. Ex Wes Parker Collection.
