I know from reading posts over the last few months, that this is the
place to go when help is needed for just about anything. Thank you for
being here and so willing to help. I know it is very hard to identify
anything by pictures but we would be interested to see what you all
Yesterday, we acquired a collection of minerals from a man who just
got tired of moving them around. Most were readily identifiable.
The one in the photos (link provided) The blue crystals were covered
with a green copper looking material. We removed the material with
water and a toothbrush. We uncovered these vibrant blue crystals,
There are also quartz crystals, and it looks like chocopyrite that is
weathered, and some very small dark blue crystals that look like
azurite. It is about 4 inches by 3 inches high and the blue crystal
cluster on top is about 2 " by 2". The crystals have striations and
appear to be etched.Also, the crystals are very rounded. And the
piece does not fluoresce..
We have never seen anything like this rock, and would appreciate any
insight anyone could offer.
We know absolutely nothing about the location or origin
The photos are here:
Thanks again for any help.
