Apache Chrysocolla gem cabochon 8/1/2019 01 - 30 x 26 x 5 mm - 32 carats - This outstanding, high grade gem is cut from one of the most beautiful and rare stone I know of. I consider Apache Chrysocolla as the holy grail of chrysocolla. It is said to come from an old worked out copper mine in Mexico and there is nothing I know of that is quite like it. This stunning, very rare stone is made up of many different minerals including Chrysocolla, Malachite, Shattuckite, Turquoise, Calcite, Cuperite, Hematite, Quartz, Linarite, Silver and even Gold. Many years ago it made the cover of Rock and Gem magazine. These days there is very little of this on the market and the price has skyrocketed. This is old, high grade material. The color and patterns are unique. This excellent and colorful stone has some of the best colors, metallics and patterns you'll see in this stone. This cabochon has a nicely rounded medium dome, girdled sides and a flat beveled back all with a high gloss and metallic luster.
