Junction Mine, Bisbee, Warren Dist., Mule Mtns, Cochise Co.
Arizona, United States
13.1 x 8 x 5.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $1500
Post Tucson 2015

An especially choice old Bisbee Azurite that hosts two dozen crystallized rosettes to about 1 CM in size on a contrasting matrix. From a small collection made in 1921-22 by a Bisbee miner, that was recently re-discovered wrapped in vintage newspapers and long underwear. The matrix includes tiny greenish Calcite and Dolomite crystals. A very special bonus are areas of Smithsonite scattered on the matrix, rather rare at Bisbee. A few rossettes have contacts that are not easy to see but most are quite perfect The color, luster and form are very fine.
