What a colorful specimen with naturally colored quartz due to inclusions. Paratacamite is a rare copper zinc hydroxyl halide.
Crystals are typically microscopic, but a few years ago (circa 2006-2007) at the Lily Mine in Peru, there was a discovery of some of the largest and finest quality examples of the species known.
