Foot Notes: Ajoite often forms within quartz crystals. These crystals are called “Phantoms”. This occurs when the quartz crystal stops growing and another mineral is deposited on the surface of the quartz. The quartz then starts growing again and covers the ajoite crystal thus creating a phantom.. Ajoite is a secondary mineral that forms from the oxidation of other secondary copper minerals. Ajoite is one of the rarest and most sought after crystals in the world. Ajoite is found in the New Cornelia Mine, Pima County and Wickenburg, Maricopa County, Arizona, USA and the Messina District, South Africa, a mine that has been shut down for years.
