This piece shows the brilliant blue of linarite blended with traces of green malachite and bits of an unidentified black material. The specimen is best observed using a 10X loupe. Under magnification the light is reflected from myriad, tiny crystal facets.

These linarite specimens were mined from the Acari Mine, located in Caraveli Province, Arequipa Department, Peru.

Linarite is a somewhat rare, crystalline mineral. It is copper lead sulfate hydroxide. Linarite is known among mineral collectors for its unusually intense blue color. It is formed by the oxidation of galena and chalcopyrite and other copper sulfides.

Metaphysically, linarite instills confidence and the ability to use talents brought forward from past lives. Linarite helps one to understand the reason for and how to live within limitations.
