Azurite, Malachite
Tongshan (West Tongshan) Cu-Au deposit, Anqing-Guichi Mining District, Guichi District, Chizhou Prefecture, Anhui Province, China
Small Cabinet, 5.4 x 4.4 x 3.2 cm
Though not quite the "electric blue" of other Chinese azurites, this one does have unusually bright blue color. The surface consists of a high density of small crystal blades; around the sides (and in back of) the azurite is nicely accenting green malachite.
