Atacamite (Tierra Amarilla, Chile)
La Farola Mine, Tierra Amarilla, Chile) 45mm x 50mm x 20mm.
Atacamite is a alteration product of copper suphides, most commonly found in desert conditions. The deposit in the Atacama desert was to our knowledge the only one that was commercially mined. This specimen is in perfect condition and will be sent with the very old and worn label as well. (The label is very messy but we feel it should go with the specimen anyway)
