Bluebird Chrysocolla
Bluebird Chrysocolla comes from an old copper mine in Gila County, Arizona.
RUSS KANIUTH

The mine was closed down in the very early 1980’s, and this material has been exceedingly scarce and troublesome to find nowadays. If you come across some Bluebird, the amazement you get from holding a piece and gazing at all the brilliant colors is like no other stone. With the azurite, chrysocolla, malachite, tenorite and so many other copper minerals all united in one material is just amazing to see all these bright blues, reds and greens in one. The patterns in Bluebird are amazing, no two stones are alike, and yet you can easily spot this material from any other on the planet!
