Copper Queen Mine , Cochise county, Bisbee
10x10x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
A superb, classic locality piece with fantastic esthetics and rich color. This is essentially all Azurite with a tiny bit of malachite on the reverse side, and numerous micro crystals several of the classic species the locality is famous for. This specimen is composed of well crystallized Azurite in several habits up to 1 CM in size. This stands without aid and is very 3 dimensional. The condition is exceptional as this example is clearly very old, likely from the heyday of the mine in the later 1800's. Rare to find in this condition and quality !
