Calcite with Aragonite- classic locale
Southwest Mine, Bisbee, Warren District, Mule Mts, Cochise Co.
8.8 x 4.9 x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
A choice Bisbee specimen with delicate needle crystals of acicular Aragonite perched on balls of Calcite. From the Southwest mine, this area intersected many voids formed by slumping of oxidized sulphide ore. These voids allowed many secondary Carbonate minerals to form in esthetic growths. As the mining entered these voids some fine specimens were saved. In perfect condition and with good luster.
