This hand specimen displays some wonderfully deep blue nearly transparent crystals of chrysocolla (more properly, agate colored with chrysocolla), plus it has two areas where the agatized chrysocolla has been coated with a druze of quartz crystals, making this a "drusy chrysocolla" specimen. There is another area where the chrysocolla has a turquoise appearance, and some cavities in the agatized chrysocolla have a fine, powdery very pale blue coating, likely a weathering product of chrysocolla.
