Though a classic Mexican specimen as shown by the Limonite matrix, this Conichalcite crust is unusual due to the large size of its crystals. Most specimens don't have crystals large enough to achieve the sparkly sheen that this item has on its almost botryoidal form. The druse's color is a pale grass-green. I don't really like Mexican pieces that have Limonite matrices, but I LOVE botryoidal minerals, and in this case the crystal size compels me to make an exception.
