Azurite with minor Malachite
Tongshan Copper-Iron Mine, Guichi City
Anhui, China
7.4 x 6.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $140


A big, bright blue sparkling specimen with Azurite crystals densely packed on the display faces. The copper deposits in this area of Anhui province have been mined for thousands of years, probably the longest continuous operation on earth. Small scale mining lets specimens escape the huge crushers that are used elsewhere. Very attractive and affordable.
