Collector Crystal: Gem Silica Quartz from the Lily Mine in Peru (now closed)


This specimen was obtained direct from the Peruvian family that mined it. The Lily Mine, Pisco Umay, Ica in Peru is now CLOSED; these specimens are the last of their kind.

Each of these crystals looks like a piece of art, created by Nature itself. These specimens can include a combination of the following minerals: Quartz, Gem Silica, Botryoidal Chrysocolla, Malachite, Atacamite, Limonite, and Gypsum.

Completely NATURAL/un-enhanced color-straight from Mother Earth, to the Peruvian family that mined it, to me.

Measures Approximately 2" x 1" x 1"
Crystal Attributes: *Botyroidal Gem Silica looks like an ocean with waves, over Quartz with a *Coatings of Limonite, Atacamite, and Crysocolla.

💚💙💚Gem silica is a bluish green to greenish blue variety of chalcedony that receives its vivid color from the presence of copper. It is often known as "chrysocolla chalcedony" or "gem silica chrysocolla." Even though gem silica is one of the most beautiful blue gemstones, most people have never heard of it. That is because it is a very rare gem. It is seldom seen in jewelry and is used mainly by a small number of high-end jewelry designers. Chrysocolla is a stone of empowerment of the feminine energies, teaching that genuine power is best expressed through gentleness. It is a stone of the Goddess, and those who resonate with it will likely feel her ancient and enduring energies rising within themselves.
