Item Description

Here is a wonderful thumbnail 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 and unique pseudo hexagonal form that has made these pieces some of the most well known and highly sought after pseudomorphs around. This specimen is a very fine example of this material, especially considering that hosts multiple crystals! There is actually one small, white exposed crystal of un-pseudomorphed Aragonite on one end of the piece as well! 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.
