RM553   Azurite with malachite pseudomorph after azurite

Dzhezkazgan Mine, Dzhezkazgan, Karagandy, Karaganda Oblast', Kazakhstan

A very rich specimen formed by several azurite crystals that have been pseudomorphed by malachite showing original lanceolated forms, also tabular crystals with  velvety faces due to fibrous malachite. Azurite, with deep color, crystals also observed partially converted into malachite. The brilliance of both minerals is really good, with superb aesthetics. From a mine not well represented in collections and which nowadays is difficult to obtain fine mineral specimens.

Dzhezkazgan Mine, Dzhezkazgan, Karagandy, Karaganda Oblast', Kazakhstan

A floater aggregate of lanceolated sharp azurite crystals with an excellent color and luster, with small malachite pseudomorph after azurite growths. From a mine not well represented in collections.

RM549   Djurleite with chalcocite and chalcopyrite

Dzhezkazgan Mine, Dzhezkazgan, Karagandy, Karaganda Oblast', Kazakhstan

In this specimen we observe groups of brilliant galena crystals showing complex forms with parallel growths. Accompanied by some isolated groups of djurleite crystals, those are distinguished by having less brilliance, greyish tone and iridiscent reddish reflections. Prisms are presented as complex forms, rich in faces, with striations and twinned. Djurleite is an uncommon copper sulfide closely related to chalcocite. Published in LAPIS (2014).


Size: 7,5 x 5,0 x 3,0 cm.
Main crystal: 8 x 3 mm.
