This beautiful specimen is described as Chalcedony on Chrysocolla stalactites (pocket). With a blue-inexperienced chalcedony-crusted exterior, an uncommon pocket that opens to disclose the extremely textured inside, and various quartz-coated chrysocolla stalactites the colour of icy glaciers, the mineral is actually a singular sight to behold.
