Azurite, Malachite
Helvetia, Helvetia-Rosemont District, Santa Rita Mts, Pima Co., Arizona, USA
Small Cabinet, 6.6 x 4.3 x 3.1 cm
A very bright blue azurite, in the form of sparkling drusy crystals, on malachite matrix. A fine locality specimen from Helvetia, and they are not common; though admittedly not very significant if it was from other locales. From the well-known Tucson collection of 40-year collector, Harold Urish.
