"Gem" Chrysocolla, Quartz & Malachite Miami, Miami-Inspiration District

About the item

, , "Old-Timers" in the trade remember when Chrysocolla was Chrysocolla and squid hadn't yet morphed into 'calamari'. Now, everything siliceous and blue from included Copper is 'Gem Silica' and pricing is by the carat. Such is the way of the world, especially when the items in question are highly sought after because they stoke our inner hunger for beauty. Pretty good "stoker" here and many is the lapidary casting a covetous eye on it, with lascivious thoughts of  Don't let that happen; buy it for what it is, not for what it could become.Ex. Norm Hoffler Collection [RHC #5066, acquired 1987][Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]HID07601242017
