More Cherry Reds Sonora Sunrise Eye Candy!
« on: August 04, 2019, 12:03:42 PM »

These are from a big 60 pound boulder I bought from Micky on eBay. As far as I can see he doesn't have much more of this color. Magenta/Purple tinted Reds probably result from the more violet red cuprite mixing with red and orange chrysocolla. The reds are accompanied by other cool colors like orange, turquoise, gold and green.

Enjoy!















Note the stringers of cuprite in this slab.
