Azurite with Anglesite

$2,500.00   €2,258  £2,000.00 approx.  

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

ID: CC15392
Thick tabular, intensely dark blue Azurite crystals cap a crystallised Cerussite matrix from the Tsumeb mine.  The largest Azurite blade measures 1.9 x 1.7 x 0.4 cm and all have a near mirror-like lustre and flattened chisel-like terminations with bevelled edges.  The crystals are opaque,  but when held against the light display vivid azure-blue edges where the crystals are sufficiently thin to transmit light.  The Anglesite matrix is interspersed with micro Duftite producing a chloritised appearance.  A beautiful specimen, somewhere between a thumbnail and miniature.
