Google is your friend.

Sonora Sunrise is a great new find out of Mexico that was the hot new rock and the Tucson and Quartzite Gem and rock shows! It is made up of Chrysocolla, which is a beautiful blue, and Cuprite, which has some great red variations!

I use to collect rocks, and have to admit, it sure is good looking. I hope someone here has a line on it, but since it originates in Mexico, I don't believe there will be much success.

there is some that's gem grade that's pricey, but a good size chunk like shown is about 30 to 50 bucks. but makes some awesome jewelry and cabochons.

if anyone could find some close to pictured for sale or trade I'd be interested, not very much of it up here.
