Hemimorphite and Wulfenite
Availability: 1 in stock
A deep vug infilled with botroidal grey hemimorphites (crystal composites) that have a growth phase at the outer edges that illustrate individual radiating acicular crystals, providing a sheen-like aura around them. The outside reveals wulfenites and spherical blue hemimorphites between the friable matrix. Contact damage from removal as pictured, but still quite an interesting specimen to examine. Expect a few matrix crumbles in the package. Ex Ken Roberts collection.
Locality: 79 Mine, Chilito, Gila County Arizona
