Azurite, Malachite
Small Cabinet, 5.4 x 4.4 x 3.2 cm
Tongshan (West Tongshan) Cu-Au deposit, Anqing-Guichi Mining District, Guichi District, Chizhou Prefecture, Anhui Province, China
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.
