I had a hell of a good day adventuring around Southern Arizona today. Got a peek at the famed Ray Mine. Foraged around the Pennsylvanian Naco formation with honestly pretty lame but present invertebrate fossils. Saw the Naco cut by a intrusive disbase dike on the edges of the copper porphyry on the other side of the hill. The day culminated with ventures into an exotic copper mineralization zone up Black Copper wash. Found glaucocerinite essentially as a cement holding together a conglomerate of 1.4 billion year old Ruin Granite alluvium. Then at the end of the wash we witnessed the glory of a rare orthosierpierite seep actively forming before our eyes. The seep was surrounded by atacamite included gypsum. My lady and I left the seep intact and only collected a couple pieces of the gypsum proximate to the seep as well as some representative pieces of glaucocerinite. Much more could be said about the place but I’ll leave it at that. Great success.

#Shattuckite is an uncommon copper mineral that is highly regarded for its vivid blue color. It is named after the Shattuck Mine in Bisbee, Arizona, where this mineral was first discovered. Shattuckite occasionally forms within #QuartzCrystals , underneath the top layer. This creates striking blue formations of Quartz, sometimes with sparkling blue druses. Some collector specimens of Shattuckite are polished to fully bring out the color effect, especially when associated with #Malachite , with a blue and green color effect. (minerals.net)
