This is an unusual specimen of chrysocolla for three reasons.  First, the color is a richly saturated turquoise blue that is richer than the usual light blue you see in this mineral.  Second, the chrysocolla has formed in distinct hemispherical balls which are not all run together – they are just far enough apart that you can see almost the whole of every sphere.  And third, the surfaces of the chrysocolla are smooth, with a silky luster, rather than being slightly flannel-textured. The combination makes this a highly aesthetic specimen, in a large decorator size that will look great on display.
