How bold of nature to make a rock with these two colors side-by-side! This rock is called “Sonoran Sunset Chrysocholla” – and I took a picture in its raw form. I fell in love with this rock at first site! The owner of the jewelry shop was nice enough to pull it out of the case and set it out for me to take a photo.
I thought she had said it was found in Arizona… but on the web the only location I see is Northern Mexico. Of course, Northern Mexico borders AZ, so maybe it was found in AZ, near the Mexican border. Rocks probably don’t understand borders.
You should see these in its original 4000 x 3000 pixel size on my 23″ screen. Now that is BOLD!
The store that let me take this images (and many others) was All in Vein; they will be in Quartzsite for Jan and Feb.
Processing: I adjusted levels and contrast a bit.
