- Azurite "rose"
- Miniature, 3.0 x 2.9 x 2.5 cm
- Copper Queen Mine, Bisbee, Cochise County, Arizona, USA
This classic Bisbee Azurite rosette is so sharply formed it looks carved! This piece has an overall squarish to diamond shape and is composed of numerous, curved, yet distinct, Azurite crystals that display an incredibly saturated, royal deep blue color. All of the component crystals have sharp edges and faces with incredible luster, so much so it sparkles. A moderately intense light source on the edges of the piece reveals its translucent, royal blue color. This is the typical "Bisbee Rose" style famous for 100 years. This piece is so good that it could be displayed in a couple of different orientations. A wonderful toenail (small miniature) Azurite from the USA!
