Stunning Gem Silica Chrysocolla
Inspiration Mine, Miami, Arizona
From a mine now virtually and no longer commercially viable (it was operable from 1879 to 1972), this sizeable triangular free-form cabochon is as fine an example of gem silica chrysocolla as can be found on the market. Capable of being mounted either as a pendant or belt buckle, the stone has a luminous quality, vivid blue color and excellent polish.
Weighing approximately 318.91 carats and measuring 57.5 x 44.0 x 19.0mm
