Cyanotrichite is a copper mineral named for its bright blue fuzzy crystals. From the Greek, kyaneos, "blue" and riches, "hair," hence, blue hair. This specimen was collected by Bart Bauers, a fellow of the Pennsylvania Academy of Science, in the 1960s. Trekking into this part of New Mexico in the 1960s was a true test of courage.
