Azurite, Malachite
Cabinet, 10.9 x 8.9 x 6.4 cm
Bisbee, Warren District, Mule Mts, Cochise Co., Arizona, USA
It is so hard to get ANYTHING from the old Bisbee locality these days. Some people think of it as the great American locality, and specimens from here are greatly prized. Here is a large specimen of the classic Bisbee association of azurite and malachite, in the form of micro-crystals on a platy matrix of limonite. The malachite looks as though it has been sprinkled over the limonite and azurite.
