ID: CC14274

A fine specimen of deep azure-blue, almost black, with flashes bright electric azure-blue intergrown blades of Azurite on an interesting matrix of mixed copper secondaries from the Tsumeb mine in the Otjikoto Region of Namibia.  The Azurite forms flat edged chisel-like terminations with the crystals typically around 1.2cm.  An area of emerald-green Malachite sits at one side, partly replacing an Azurite crystal.  Mainly underneath the specimen is a green microcrystal of Adamit.  Some of the Azurite crystals are chipped some edges and this is reflected in the price.
