Azurite, Malachite
Liufengshan Mine, Anqing-Guichi Mining District, Guichi District, Chizhou Prefecture, Anhui Province, China
Small Cabinet, 9.2 x 5.9 x 2.1 cm
This is a shallow pocket filled with very sparkly and lustrous crystals of azurite - not just a druse as with some of these Chinese specimens, but defined crystals. Associated malachite adds a green color accent. If you turn the specimen over, you see that it is massive azurite and malachite, no matrix.
