Azurite, Malachite
Lavender Open Pit Mine (Lavender pit), Bisbee, Warren District, Mule Mts, Cochise Co., Arizona, USA
Small Cabinet, 5.4 x 4.9 x 4.9 cm
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.
