Azurite, Malachite
Lavender Open Pit Mine (Lavender pit), Bisbee, Warren District, Mule Mts, Cochise Co., Arizona, USA
Miniature, 3.9 x 2.3 x 2.0 cm
An aesthetic, grape-like cluster of dark blue, azurite botryoids beautifully accented by a scattering of malachite from the famous Lavender Pit at Bisbee. This very showy and pristine piece is nearly a floater, with only a small point of attachment. Excellent Bisbee material from the Dave and Emily Stoudt Collection.
