Azurites-Beautiful Milpillas Finds
Milpillas is now the world’s finest and most productive source ever of Azurite, without a doubt. We have pursued this mine since its first trickle of material in 2007, and continue to have a strong buying presence there. As mining of the surface oxide zone which contains the azurite winds down (the mine is now converting to process the solid chalcocite orebody beneath), we can expect an eventual end to the flood of great azurites. Like other finds that have come and gone in the past, NOW is the time to buy, while they are plentiful. Presented here are specimens from two pockets of summer and fall, 2013.
