About half of the host rock of this hand specimen is heavily interspersed with veins of massive Chrysocolla. There are also a few hollows assoicated with these veins, whose surfaces are coated with druses of tiny, transparent quartz crystals. These crystals add a sparkle to the otherwise dull, resinous luster of the Chrysocolla. The aqua-blue mineral is easy to see against the brown color and earthy luster of the quartzite host rock.
