Azurite from Blue Mine, Chessy, Rhone-Alpes, France [db_pics/pics/e669a.jpg] Azurite from Blue Mine, Chessy, Rhone-Alpes, France [db_pics/pics/e669b.jpg] Azurite from Blue Mine, Chessy, Rhone-Alpes, France [db_pics/pics/e669c.jpg]

Floater cluster of Azurite from the famous Chessy mines of France. This one has a neat 2.5cm wide crystal edge forming a sharp ridge right down the center. These mines are long closed and I understand these specimens were found in the 1800s. There are no points of contact, a complete floater. There is some damage on one end but overall it's in great condition.

Cluster of large Paravauxite crystals from the famous Siglo XX (Twentieth Century) Mine in Bolivia. These are very large crystals for the species (the main crystal is 2.1cm!!) - most Paravauxite crystals are under 1cm in size.  The Siglo Veinte mine is the Type locality for this uncommon phosphate species.  Small amounts of blue Vauxite adds color contrast. Big crystals!
