Azurite, Malachite
Small Cabinet, 5.4 x 4.9 x 4.9 cm
Lavender Open Pit Mine (Lavender pit), Bisbee, Warren District, Mule Mts, Cochise Co., Arizona, USA
The classic combo from perhaps THE classic American locality! This specimen features balls of deep blue azurite accented by oxidized green malachite that is a pseudomorph after the primary azurite. The overall form is quite aesthetic, with the azurite balls piled up beautifully on the matrix. Ex. Dave Stoudt Collection.
