Kobyashevite Mineral Specimen
A magnificent, vivid teal-blue Kobyashevite crystal cluster specimen from Mina Ojuela, Durango, Mexico. This stone’s peaceful ocean feelings and colour, as well as its small fluffy coats are simply charming.
There has been significant debate concerning this stone, with no definitive answers…
The fuzzy blue appearance is caused by the combination and formation of copper, gypsum, bright acicular crystal sparkles or “Selenite fur,” and other minerals after the extraction of calcite (the base crystal) from the ground. Some say this happens naturally, while others say miners discovered a way to speed up the process by using a natural solution.
