Rosasite, Malachite, Azurite
Bisbee, Warren District, Mule Mts, Cochise Co., Arizona, USA
Miniature, 3.9 x 3.5 x 1.5 cm
A classic, old-time and very sculptural, double pseudomorph from Bisbee. Robin's-egg-blue rosasite pseudomorphs malachite, which in turn pseudomorphed sharp azurite crystals on the gossan matrix. A couple of broken crystals at the top of the piece reveal the malachite, which has pseudomorphed the azurite crystals. Excellent and aesthetic material from this historic locale from the Dennis Mullane Bisbee Collection.
