RM1459   Azurite and Malachite

Cobriza mine, Huancavelica, Perú

Specimens of azurite from the Peruvian mines are very rare and less with the quality of this we propose. There are various cavities in a matrix of goethite, which are covered by malachite botrioids, formed by very thin green needles. Over them several azurite rosette aggregates, isolated crystals also present, with an exceptional brightness and color. The specimen is really aesthetic and from a locality not seen in collections.

Size: 8.4 x 5.0 x 3.2 cm.
