Azurite -Spherical with Malachite
stock #13.1-416
Morenci Mine, Copper Mt. District, Shannon Mts., Greenlee County
Arizona, United States
8.6 x 5.9 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $900
Spring update

Brilliant blue ball form Azurites sit on a contrasting gossan matrix with a few areas of Malachite. Choice old specimen ex Warren Johannson collection. Warrens notes give the locality as Bisbee and he obtained it in 1937. It is very likely from nearby Morenci as this habit is noted there, and many Morenci pieces ended up with Bisbee labels. Some additional balls are on the backside, but the display side shown is the best for presentation. The soft matrix has been stabilized, the luster is very bright and the color electric blue.
