DescriptionSONORA SUNSET SLAB
6.96 x 5.43 x 0.22 inches (17.7 x 13.8 x 0.56 cm)
While the Milpillas Mine may be more well-known these days for the "electric" blue Azurites it has been producing to the delight of mineral collectors, this beautiful slab hails from that same renowned locality. Termed Sonora Sunset (and, sometimes, Sonora Sunrise), this fabulous, essentially two-tone wonder is a combination of Chrysocolla (blue-green) plus Cuprite (red) split about two-thirds and one-third over this slab which has been cut and polished to reveal this unique and colorful material to its utmost potential.
