5.2 x 4.2 x 2.3 cm. Chenevixite is an uncommon copper asenate. This showy and excellent, richly-covered specimen, both front and back, consists of box-works of light green chenevixite microcrystals and plates. An extra bonus finds lustrous, dark olive-green olivenite microcrystals in some of the boxes. Excellent and uncommon combination material from this less well-known Australian locale.
