Rare large cluster of Rosasite after Malachite after Azurite crystals, the largest cluster I can recall ever seeing. Note that this has been repaired in a number of places. This came out of an old collection and the repairs have not been done to modern standards, so it could be greatly improved. There are five large crystals that comprise the group. Just a rare and spectacular piece.

Unique thumbnail specimen of star-shaped Mimetite with attached Malachite. Fully crystallized all around with only one tiny point of contact on the backside. With a little imagination you can see a starfish with Malachite eyes and mouth. Never seen one like this before. From the collection of Rob Smith.

Cluster of large, partially etched Azurite crystals from Tsumeb. Fully crystallized all around, even part of the bottom is recrystallized! There is a small indentation showing Malachite on the lower front face (possibly damage, possibly natural), and the lower backside of the back crystal has some indentations/contact from another former Azurite crystal. Otherwise good all around. These good large Tsumeb Azurites are very hard to come by now.

Cluster of 3 crystals of Azurite that are mostly psuedomorphed to Tennantite. Not only is it an aesthetic cluster, on virtually all similar pieces I've owned, I've never seen any remaining Azurite, they have all been 100% psuedomorphed. On this one you can see areas of residual blue Azurite.
