Azurite on Limonite
Bisbee, Cochise County, Arizona, USA
Miniature, 4.3 x 3.5 x 2.9 cm
Ex. Herb Obodda
An old classic! Emplaced aesthetically on an ocherous limonite matrix is a small cluster of parallel growth, tabular crystals, to 2.7 cm across of neon blue azurite. The luster is so fine that the azurite crystals exhibit totally gemmy highlights. Very minor contact on the right side does not diminish the beauty of the specimen. Fine old miniature from Bisbee!
