Brochantite- (rare stout crystals)
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Municipio de Santa Cruz
Sonora, Mexico
4.9 x 3.7 x 3.9 CM (miniature)
price: $775


A well formed and undamaged specimen of the "stout" crystal habit found about 4 years ago at Milpillas. This locale is now world famous for some of the best Azurites, and the very best Brochantites ever seen. The Brochantites were mostly of the delicate "hairy" or fuzzy type, which were beautiful but incredibaly fragile. Only a few of the thicker crystals on matrix came out. The very best pieces sold quickly in the 5 and 6 figure range, few were available for collectors of "normal" means. This is one such- an excellent miniature example that is both esthetic and affordable. The largest crystal is 2.5 CM long and all have excellent luster.
