Azurite, Malachite
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Mun. de Cananea, Sonora, Mexico
Cabinet, 9.8 x 8.8 x 3.2 cm
Highly lustrous, royal-blue to midnight-blue, parallel-growth azurite blades richly cover both sides of this fine specimen from recent finds in Mexico. The malachite matrix is a nice compliment to the richness of the piece. Highly representative and rich for the species and locale. Ex. Tarnowski Collection.
