Calcite, Hydrozincite and Powellite from Shadow Hills, Mojave Desert, CA

Here's a nice little specimen that was from a selection of handouts for kids at a local show. Calcite (red), Hydrozincite (blue), Powellite (yellow) from the Shadow Hills area in the Mojave Desert in California. A very nice little piece that proves not all beautiful rocks have to be expensive. Shown in shortwave and natural.
