AZURITE with MALACHITE

$800.00   €726  £650.00 approx.  

This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC13196
A choice small miniature of deep azure-blue, double terminated Azurite crystals with a partial coating slightly altering to Malachite.  In reflected and transmitted light, the edges of the crystals show flashes of vivid electric-blue.  From the Tsumeb mine in Namibia, the prism faces are lightly striated parallel to the c-axis but have mirror-like termination faces.  Azurite is one of the iconic species from Tsumeb and this is an attractive example.
