Sorry Don, I'm afraid is Chrysocolla. I did the corresponding analysis of these samples and even spoke with representatives of the University of Arizona from where theoretically came the classification as "Ajoite", and is not Ajoite but Chrysocolla.

Dear Jordi,

No need to apologize, you are helping me. I have read the mindat thread. I cannot edit my post. Can you please correct the mistake?

Thank you.
