Azurite with Malachite Pseudomorph

ID: CC8785
Individual Azurite crystals to about 1 cm long radiate outwards like the staves of a paper fan, with many parts of the crystals pseudomorphing to Malachite.  This large thumbnail specimen, mounted on a clear acrylic base, is from the Christiana mine, one of the four principal mines in the Kamariza district.  Malachite dominates the specimen and forms very sharp pseudomorphs dusted with an orange-tan micro-crystalline mineral, possibly Mimetite, also occurring as micro-acicular crystals.  A terrific specimen.
