Azurite, Malachite
Morenci, Copper Mountain District (Clifton-Morenci District), Shannon Mts, Greenlee Co., Arizona, USA
Large Cabinet, 16.5 x 9.2 x 5.8 cm
A large, spectacular specimen mined at Morenci in the 1980s, featuring deep blue rosettes of azurite standing on edge on a bed of contrasting light green malachite. The azurites cover the matrix in a rich carpet, with the matrix peeking through here and there to set them off perfectly.
