Liufengshan Mine, Guichi Dist., Chizhou, Anhui, China
Small Cabinet, 8.3 x 7.0 x 3.6 cm

Big, beautiful, blue glistening botryoids of Azurite are richly and aesthetically mounded very three-dimensionally on this gorgeous piece from the Liufengshan copper mine in China! Individual botryoids measure 1 to 2.5 cm across! The sparkling, royal blue Azurite provides contrast to the rich blue color of the radial divergent Azurite around the periphery of the piece and the bright green Malachite found on the back of the piece. This is just a stunning and attractive display specimen from the best Azurite locality in China, for sheer color and sparkle! From finds if the mid-2010s, now classic for the locality.
