Olivenite, Conichalcite, and Rosasite

ID: CC1554

An engaging multi species specimen from the Christiana Mine, Lavrion, Greece. Acicular divergent crystals of light olive green Olivenite mostly occupy the main central area of the specimen. Rich grass green spherulites and botryoidal areas are mostly concentrated with and below the Olivenite crystal area. Interspersed with the Olivenite and Conichalcite are blue-green spherulites and botryoidal areas of Rosasite, a white undefined mineral is also in association, on a classic Goethite Gossan Matrix. A stunning specimen to see under the microscope or hand loop.
