Azurite, Malachite
Big Indian Mine, Big Indian District (Big Indian Wash - Lisbon Valley Area), San Juan Co., Utah, USA
Miniature, 5.0 x 4.0 x 4.0 cm
A 3-cm bloom of azurite crystals standing up on a matrix of little velvety balls of malachite. Pretty! AND MOST UNUSUAL....LaSalle specimens tend to be floater balls of azurite. I have only seldom seen malachite, and never such an exemplary specimen of discretely crystallized azurite ON malachite! 5 x 4 x 4 cm
