Copper pseudomorph after Aragonite
stock #20.1-302-(LW1064)
Corocoro, Pacajes Province
La Paz, Bolivia
1.3 x 1.2 x .5 CM (thumbnail)
price: $190


A perfect small thumbnail of native Copper that has faithfully replaced a hexagonal Aragonite crystal. The Aragonite form is textbook perfect and the patina is a choice red copper hue. No damage, complete all around this is both sharper and with better color than usually seen. These pseudomorphs were found more than 30 years ago and not since. Ex Larry White collection.
Copper pseudomorph after Aragonite
stock #17.1-179
Corocoro, Pacajes Province
La Paz, Bolivia
3.4 x 2.2 x 2.7 CM (miniature)
price: $490
Late Summer 2018

Sharp replacement of hexagonal Aragonite crystals by native copper. Excellent form, complete on all sides and with classic hexagonal prisms. Slightly hoppered on flat faces, this is formed of two textbook prisms that intersect on one narrow edge. Usually these pseudos are rather crude, it is very special when such sharp detail is preserved.
