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 close-up view on the left upper and lower corners) some of the Austinite is not as blue-green in color, but instead has a more olivine color  which I assume means it probably has less copper in its composition.
