14PE28 Atacamite with (and in) Selenite
Lily Mine (Lilly Mine), Pisco Umay, Ica Department, Peru
17.8x 7.5x 8.6 cm
$490

A cabinet specimen covered with selenite, and in parts with prismatic atacamite.  A subsequent generation of selenite has crystallized on the piece, and some of those crystals are included with atacamite.

 

There is some edge damage to some of the larger selenite crystals-- the mineral is notoriously soft and cleavable-- but all in all, the piece is exactly as shown in the pictures.
