RM1154   Azurite with malachite

Khanong open pit, Sepon Mine, Vilabouly, Savannakhét, Lao People's Democratic Republic

A novelty in Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines 2015. A rich group of well defined azurite crystals, good brilliance and with transparence. The blue color is very intense. They are disposed in a vug into the gossan-cuprite matrix. Showy specimen from a copper and gold mine located in Laos, not well-known and less represented in collections. Few specimens from this mine had been previously seen in the market but with lower quality.

Size: 9.7 x 5.8 x 4.6 cm.
Main crystal: 4 x 4 mm.
Found in 2015.
