CHRYSOCOLLA MALACHITE AND QUARTZ Details:

For sale is a specimen of clear drusy quartz over malachite and crysocolla, from Sunset mine, Qld.

CHRYSOCOLLA PSEUDO AZURITE, WITH WULFENITE
CHRYSOCOLLA PSEUDO AZURITE, WITH WULFENITE Details:


These rare gems are actually triple pseudos, the original azurite was replaced by malachite, which at a latter time was replaced by the wonderful blue chrysocolla. Whim creek produced by far the worlds best of this type of pseudo. The azurite replacements are sharp and in a some areas show very clean sharp single crystal replacment, a bit uncommon at Whim creek. There are a few bi-pyramidal wulfenites associated. There are a couple of small dings, but overall this is trivial, considering the size and rarity of the piece. Defunct local. The specimen is actually just a shade deeper blue than the pics indicate.

There is also a liberal sprinkling of the famous gemmy, bi-pyramidal wulfenite crystals. with an added bonus of a very well placed 5mm wulfenite crystal,perfectly places in front of the chrysocolla. As can be seen in the picture. Defunct local. Ex Ray Montgomery collection.
