Azurite, Malachite
Anhui Province, China
Small Cabinet, 8.5 x 4.6 x 4.5 cm
A STRIKING and GORGEOUS vug lined with very sparkly, dark royal-blue azurite crystals in a matrix of chatoyant, layered malachite. We acquired this Chinese lot at the 2005 Tucson Show and really caused a stir. Many extremely knowledgeable dealers and collectors at the Show remarked that these azurites with malachite bear a remarkable resemblance to classic Bisbee material! 8.5 x 4.6 x 4.5 cm
