This specimen consists of microcrystalline antlerite on a quartz matrix. Also associated with the antlerite are dark blue crystals that I believe are linarite. The antlerite is in the form of tiny radiating nodules around and on the blue crystals. The antlerite crystals are too small for effective study, even with a loupe. There is no damage to the primary group of antlerite crystals.
