Item #8076
Azurite crystals on Malachite
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Mun. de Cananea, Sonora, Mexico

By now, I think most people agree that Milpillas, Mexico has redefined what the best azurites in the world look like. And some of the most sought after pieces are the dark blue crystals on a velvety green malachite matrix...like this one. This specimen measures 7.5 x 4 x 3.5 cm and has no damage. I bought it in Mexico, but NOT in Milpillas (I won't go there). I bought it in another town (quite far away, actually) because miners from that town are bused all around Mexico to work from mine to mine. A lucky chance for me! And maybe a nice specimen for your collection as well.
