New Cornelia Mine (Ajo Mine), Ajo, Little Ajo Mts, Ajo District, Pima Co., Arizona, USA
Cabinet, 11.5 x 7.5 x 3.5 cm
A large plate of superb azurite crystals, sharp and lustrous, some of them pseudomorphing to malachite to add a pretty accenting green color. Unlike many Arizona azurite plates that are wall-to-wall crystals, this one features a fine balance of crystals with contrasting background matrix, making it all the more attractive. Azurites are notoriously hard to shoot, so the luster and sharpness are far better in person! You don't see many big, showy Arizona azurites for well under a grand! 11.5 x 7.5 x 3.5 cm
