Item Description

Here is a wonderful small miniature size specimen of the famous pseudomorphs of Copper after Aragonite from Corocoro. These floater specimens are well known from Bolivia for their great form and color, and this piece has the classic form that has made these pieces some of the most well known and highly sought after pseudomorphs around. This specimen is a great example of this material, as it is actually a cluster of two intergrown pseudomorphs. There hasn't been any significant amount of these specimens on the market in approximately 25 years, and they are often only found in old collections. For the size, sharpness and quality, this is a superb example of these unique specimens.
