Azurite, Malachite
Touissit, Touissit District, Oujda-Angad Province, Oriental Region, Morocco
Small Cabinet, 6.1 x 4.5 x 4.3 cm
A classic and highly aesthetic specimen of Azurite on Malachite from the world famous locality of Touissit. Three crystals with the finest deep blue color, sharp faces, and high luster are protruding from a contrasting lively green Malachite "core." The most impressive aspect is the fact that it has the most electric internal blue color when backlit. Few localities in the world produce Azurite of this quality and to find crystals on matrix like this is certainly uncommon. Ex. Brian Kosnar Collection.
