Azurite on Cuprian Adamite With 'Gartrellite'

ID: CC3077

A beautiful sharply formed crystal cluster of Azurite crystals displays well on a druse of Cuprian Adamite with associated yellow Gartrellite. The euhedral block-prismatic crystals of Azurite measuring to 0.8cm possess a bright luster, and strong deep blue colour. The Azurite crystals are excellently contrasted on the druse of bright green Cuprian Adamite, which is veined and spotted by probable canary yellow Gartrellite. A very pleasing specimen from the Tsumeb Mine, Namibia.
