Azurite, Malachite
Liufengshan Mine, Anqing-Guichi Mining District, Guichi District, Chizhou Prefecture, Anhui Province, China
Cabinet, 9.5 x 6.8 x 6.2 cm
This is a very attractive small cabinet specimen of Azurite on Malachite from the prolific Liufengshan mine. It features hundreds of sharp, lustrous, midnight blue Azurite blades which have formed in "rosette"-shaped aggregates scattered atop light and dark mint green color, velvety botryoidal Malachite. The color contrast is just beautiful and truly resembles classic material from Bisbee, Arizona.
