Here's an awesome, very rare Blue Dot Chrysocolla cabochon! Fabulous blue color chrysocolla tube in quartz that looks like ice! Blue Dot is a very rare form of chrysocolla. Much more rare than the very finest gem silica.
These tubes started out as stalagmite/stalactites then filled around them with silica. The rough and any stones are EXTREMELY HARD to find and VERY pricey if you're very lucky to find any at all.
A very small pocket of this material was found at the Ray Mine in Arizona. As far as I know that is the only place Blue Dot has ever been found.
Well cut stone with a flat back and domed top. The top has a glassy polish. The back is semi-polished and does have a few flaws. See last photo.
This is a very nice example of Blue Dot. This stone will make a very high-end piece of jewelry or rare addition to your collection. I guarantee you'll look a very long time for another Blue Dot chrysocolla cab, especially this nice.
If you notice the photo of the back side of the stone, you'll notice a small divot. I've lowered the price on this stone.
