M136 - Azurite with Malachite $ 400
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico
miniature - 3.2 x 3 x 2.5 cm


Azurite with Malachite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/m136a.jpg] Azurite with Malachite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/m136b.jpg] Azurite with Malachite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/m136c.jpg]

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.
