Rocks and Minerals ➔ Acicular Turquoise

Identifier:
1991.2.1.39
Description:
The green crystals are probably malachite.  The white crystals are probably quartz, but a hardness test needs to be gone to distinguish it from calcite.  The blue-green is a mix of malachite, chrysocolla, and minor amount of turquoise.

The specimen also has a 147 on the bottom of it.
