Blue Mine, Chessy, Rhone-Alpes, France

Azurite from Blue Mine, Chessy, Rhone-Alpes, France [db_pics/pics/e629a.jpg] Azurite from Blue Mine, Chessy, Rhone-Alpes, France [db_pics/pics/e629b.jpg] Azurite from Blue Mine, Chessy, Rhone-Alpes, France [db_pics/pics/e629c.jpg]

Lovely rosettes of Azurite from the famous Chessy mines of France. These mines are long closed and I understand these specimens were found in the 1800s. This specimen is composed of two attached clusters of gorgeous blue color. There are no points of contact, a complete floater and undamaged.

Transparent, light brown Dravite with a darker rootbeer color in the lower half and a sharp change to silvery grey, cat's-eye Dravite near the top. These half normal/half cats-eye crystals are much less common than normal crystals from the find, and crystals with such a sharp delineation between the two even more so. Weighs 16.3 grams.

Hackly Copper protruding out of a Quartz matrix with areas overgrown by clear Calcite crystals. Well balanced specimen with lots of Copper and good coverage of Calcite crystals heavily included by bright, non-tarnished Copper. There is some damage to the Calcite, but it is in overall good condition.

This truely looks more like a Malachite after Tanzanite than what it is, such an unusal shape. The single 3.5cm tall crystal is visually striking against the white matrix. The chatoyancy of the velvety Malachite is wonderful with a uniform wave of light rolling up to the termination as you turn it in your hand. There is some Azurite around the base ofthe crystal. Unique.

Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico
miniature - 3.2 x 3 x 2.5 cm

Large single Azurite crystal with Malachite and smaller attached Azurite crystals. Superb electric blue coloration and wet luster. The frontside has a couple rows of tiny Azurites attached, and the backside has a single larger Azurite coming out the face. This grew straight out from the pocket wall giving such beautiful 360 degree viewing. There is a natural notch along the top edge and there appears to be a little damage right in the notch. Otherwise this is perfect and even stands up on it's own.
