Azurite, Malachite
Red Hills mine, Eagle District, White Pine Co., Nevada, USA
Small Cabinet, 6.1 x 4.9 x 3.6 cm
No, this azurite specimen will not win any beauty prizes, but it is quite notable for being a very uncommon Nevada (Red Hills) specimen of the species. The micro-crystals have formed in deep blue tufts, and there is a sparing amount of associated malachite. A rare locality piece!
