Azurite -bladed crystals altering to Malachite
Khanong open pit, Sepon Mine, Vilabouly District
Savannakhet Province, Laos
4.2 x 3.1 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $420
Winter 2016-17

A great new locality the Sepon mine in Laos has been producing a few unusual and very fine Azurites. This is a very distinctive specimen with electric blue bladed crystals standing free of the matrix. In perfect condition, some of the Azurites are zoned with a slight alteration to Malachite. Very lustrous and sharp, the matrix is a mix of malachite balls and spheres of slightly irridescent Goethite. An excellent, esthetic miniature.
