4.8 x 3.8 x .9 cm. Delightful and eye-catching, this Quartz on Chrysocolla is nothing short of terrific. The combination of multiple shades of Chrysocolla, from dark blue to sky blue, with the outer layer of sky blue coated with sparkly drusy Quartz, create a wonderful aesthetic appeal. The uniformity of the .6 cm Chrysocolla balls adds even more to the appeal.
