- Country of Origin
Messina's famous copper deposit really struck its specimen peak when the marketing of Ajoite and Papagoite inclusions in Quartz made it a more popular specimen deposit. Boasting over 25 known minerals in Quartz, and many others still unidentified, the various Messina deposits have become a sort of Mecca for Quartz inclusion enthusiasts! Specimens from Messina have come in waves over the years. Logistics and politics in Africa create challenging risks for investors! Messina will produce again, but not without great effort and investment.
