Papagoite is an ultra-rare calcium, copper silicate. This superb and aesthetic thumbnail cluster of lustrous quartz crystals is beautifully included with striking, bright blue papagoite. You can see that the crystals are very lustrous when lit on the faces. Bright green malachite is a super accent. Both fabulous crystals are SHARP! There is contact o the back, but the display face as you see, is pristine. Most Messina specimens are single quartz crystals included with papagoite. Clusters are very uncommon. Superb thumbnails even more so...and this is simply gorgeous and more richly colored than it has a right to be.
