This attractively balanced, old Bisbee piece came with a label from the David Ellis collection, from whence the specimen came, describing it as having been collected in Bisbee almost 100 years ago, in 1910! The azurite is present as a sparkling, very dark blue druse, and there is a patch of light-colored malachite in the middle of the display face. Nice contast and good size. 8.6 x 5.4 x 5.0cm
