Item Description

Rosasite is a less common, but highly desirable zinc, copper carbonate from the famous Mina Ojuela. The gorgeous, sky-blue rosasite botryoids look like a sea anemone colony in a craggy coral colony on the sculptural, sturdy, gossan matrix on this striking and excellent specimen. A very colorful and artful example of the species from a NEW FIND at this noted locale (found December, 2009).
