ID: CC8080
A fantastic large miniature/small cabinet specimen of almost solid crystalline Paralaurionite and Diaboleite with a smattering of Leadhillite crystals, from Collins vein in the Mammoth-Saint Anthony mine at Tiger, Arizona, USA.  This world-famous Au-Cu-Mo-Pb mine is renowned for its rare suite of lead minerals and this specimen is essentially composed of a mass of crystalline white to pale lemon-yellow Paralaurionite (lead oxychloride) with an incredibly rich coverage of vivid azure and deep powder-blue Diaboleite (a hydrated copper lead chloride hydroxide).  Both species form granular crystalline masses and micro-crystals all over the specimen.  Leadhillite (lead sulphate carbonate hydroxide) forms pale greenish-blue micro-granular crystals to about 5 mm, principally on what would be termed the base of the specimen.  A stunningly rich combination of some very rare lead minerals.
