Cuprian Austinite

Specimen # 970

Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico

10 x 6.5 x 3 cm

$ 300

Fine blue-green Austinite on a Limonite matrix from the Ojuela Mine.  This specimen was found in Tucson at the Gem and Mineral Show in 2017.
   



Cuprian Austinite

Specimen # 970

I am very impressed with this specimen by the contrasting colors of the Austinite with the Limonite.  The Limonite color is more red and less brown than usual.

Click on the specimen to enlarge it and check out the limonite color and the blue-green crystals of Austinite.


   

Cuprian Austinite

Specimen # 970

If you look closely (in this view on the left upper and lower corners) some of the Austinite is not as blue-green in color.  This is more the regular olivine color of Austinite which I assume means it has less copper in its composition.
