Sonora Sunrise Chrysocolla

Sonoran Sunrise Chrysocolla

Sonora Sunrise has three main components, Chrysocolla (light blue color), Cuprite (red/orange color), and Tenorite (black). Sometimes there are other minerals found in the material such as Brochantite (green spots).

This wonderful material was mined in the Milpillas Mine in Sonora, Mexico between 2007 and 2010. Although poor quality material is still available for sale, the supply of high quality Sonora Sunrise Chrysocolla is believed to have dried up making high quality slabs quite rare.

    1. Unfortunately high quality slabs of this material is now difficult to obtain.

      Care should be taken if buying this material online as many images do not match actual coloration.
