Azurite with Bayldonite

$800.00   €717  £610.00 approx.  

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

ID: CC8197
A heavy domed mound of leaf-green Bayldonite has its upper display surface strewn with small bladed Azurite crystals, with many to about 9 x 2 x 1 mm.  A dark grey Dolomite forms the core of the specimen, but only small patches of this are visible where the Bayldonite is not present.  A striking contrast is provided between the lustrous Azurite and matt, earthy Bayldonite, the latter varying in colour from light olive-green, through leaf and pistachio to lime-green.
