RM786   Copper with azurite and malachite

Oumjrane mines, Alnif, Er Rachidia, Meknès-Tafilalet, Morocco

A very curious copper specimen pseudomorphed by secondary copper minerals such as malachite and azurite. In this sample we can find a layer of small but brilliant azurite crystals and larger ones very well defined and isolated. Accompanied by small quartz crystals. A piece to enjoy under the magnifying glass.

Size: 6,5 x 4,5 x 3,0 cm.
Found in 2008.
