Item Description

A lovely small cabinet sized piece of the very rare copper-containing silicate Papagoite from the type locality for species - the New Cornelia Mine (Ajo Mine), Arizona associated with rich blue colored Shattuckite . You can see the attractive turquoise blue colored "sprays" comprising thin needles of Papagoite microcrystals nestled into the open vug on the display side of the piece. Papagoite was discovered in 1960, and pieces from the type locality are highly sought after by collector. A true old-time specimen of this rare and beautiful species. We have photographed the piece with a Canon MP-E 65 mm macro lens to better illustrate the quality.
