Good specimens of Azurite from Ecton mine, to the east of Leek in Staffordshire, are very seldom available and this is a particularly good example.  Although the mine and its dumps yielded over fifty species, Azurite was one very rarely found as good specimen material.  Many small vugs are richly lined with vivid azure-blue micro-crystals of Azurite, occurring as drusy surfaces in a hard iron-rich matrix. One face, roughly 4 x 3 cm, has been sawn, creating a stable base on which to display this choice specimen.
