This specimen consists of a brown host rock that is suffused with veins of massive Chrysocolla. Segveral of these veins contain hollows wherein lay druses of microscopic quartz crystals that coat the Chrysocolla. Many such druses are exposed and clearly visible on the piece, showing the bright aqua-blue color of the Chrysocolla and the sparkle of the quartz. The host rock has a pale brown coloration with faint hints of green in areas, and is likely made up of quartzite. A very small amount of malachite appears to be present, but most of the darker green coloration on the piece is likely due to the Chrysocolla.
