ID: CC17146
A crusty block of intergrown Baryte and Limonite is richly coated with microcrystals of powder-blue Azurite and light leaf-green to bluish-green Malachite, from the Salts Level in Ecton Mine (also known as Deep Ecton Pipe) in Staffordshire, England. The tops of large tabular crystals of Baryte to 3.8 x 2.0 x 0.5 cm form protruding ribs across the top of the specimen; the Baryte being completely hidden by micro-druses of mixed Azurite and Malachite which form a turquoise-green appearance.  A good Ecton mine display piece; a mine from which relatively few specimens appear on the market.
