Azurite on Malachite
Miniature, 4.6 x 4.2 x 3.0 cm
Milpillas Mine, Sonora, Mexico

An attractive specimen from the heyday of the Milpillas mine, which is now winding down in specimen production. Two highly lustrous, navy blue azurite crystals, to 2.8 cm ni length, form a lovely "V" shape on a matrix of bright, velvety, green malachite. The azurite crystals emit gemmy highlights of neon purplish blue, when backlit. The piece shows very well, and the azurite is complete all around. This quality, at this price, is hard to beat in my opinion.
