This wonderful mineral was lately marketed for a huge $5,000 by Rob Lavinsky of the Arkenstone. Measuring 9 x 7 x 6 cm, the stunning sample is described as Chalcedony on Chrysocolla stalactites (pocket). With a blue-green chalcedony-crusted external, an uncommon wallet that reveals to expose the extremely textured internal, and various quartz-covered chrysocolla stalactites along with of icy glaciers, the mineral is truly a exclusive vision to look at.
The piece, acquired by miner Frank Valenzuela in the Sixties, is described as "a traditional example of the quartz-covered chrysocolla stalactites from that period, but uncommon in that it was maintained as a whole wallet." Thanks to the partly transparent external and a little gap in the returning, the whole mineral shines when backlit, creating it an even more incredible option for show.
