Azurite with Arsentsumebite, Malachite etc.
stock #18.1- 636
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
6.1 x 4.8 x 3.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $4400
Dec 2018

An extraordinary, esthetic Tsumeb Azurite with crystals in compound clusters much like flattened rosettes and curved prisms. Presents well from all sides and in perfect, undamaged condition. Similar in some ways to a few specimens we have seen with this habit from the famed Easter pocket, this piece is not attributed to that find but reportedly is from an older discovery. Far better in person, the blue is an intense deep hue that is almost impossible to render on a computer screen.
Cerussite on Azurite
stock #18-AX-27-086
Poteryaevskoe Mine, Rubtsovskoe Cu-Zn-Pb deposit, Rudnyl Altai
Altaiskii Krai, Russia
5.2 x 3.3 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $725
Dec 2018

The fantastic finds of Cuprites at Rubtsovskoe was huge news a few years ago, and made the region famous. Recently some very attractive Azurites have turned up but only a few associated with Cerussite. This example has a reticulated cluster well placed on contrasting crystallized Azurite. Excellent color and form, a fine addition to any copper suite and will fit well with the Cuprites and coppers that are so well known from here.
Azurite
stock #15.1-598
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
3.1 x 2.7 x 2.4 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $450
Dec 2018

A choice early Azurite from Tsumeb formerly in the Johannson collection obtained in trade with Harvard before 1933. Thick rectangular blades in a mass on minimal matrix. Excellent luster and a somewhat unusual form, this has some chipping and some rehealed areas that can hidden by angle of display. The edge modifications and faces on this Azurite are very unusual for Tsumeb and in fact for any locality.
Azurite
stock #18-AX-3-288
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Municipio de Santa Cruz
Sonora, Mexico
3.7 x 2.2 x 1.3 CM (miniature)
price: $340
Late Summer 2018

A nicely perched deep azure-blue crystal on contrasting matrix. The habit is typical from Milpillas in the early finds and looks fine from several angles. Milpillas was such a productive locality when the Azurites were found that they are still very affordable. This piece is well above the average for quality and esthetics as seen. No damage but some small contacting that is not on the logical display angles. Very choice luster, sharp and with very bright color especially when well lit.
Azurite on Malachite
stock #18.1-406
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Municipio de Santa Cruz
Sonora, Mexico
2.4 x 2.1 x 1.7 (thumbnail)
price: $160
Late Summer 2018

Pretty thumbnail of lustrous Azurite on contrasting green Malachite. There were many Milpillas Azurites in the big finds that ended 3 years ago, this resulted in great opportunities for collectors to get very good pieces at abnormally low costs. This is such a piece with the bright color, sharp form and fine contrast. In excellent condition, looks good front and back.
Azurite- slender form, complex cluster
stock #17.1-789
Touissit, Touissit-Bou Beker Dist., Jerada Province
Oriental Region, Morocco
6.6 x 4.2 x 2.8 (cabinet)
price: $650
Late Summer 2018

All Azurite crystals with no matrix to speak of. This slender jackstraw habit much like a modern art sculpture was distinctive for the Touissit mine more than twenty years ago. The Azurites are of a complex habit and have several different styles of jagged terminations. In fine condition despite the delicate form, a few bits of adhering gossan are noted in some of the nooks and crannies. A choice and now classic specimen this style Azurite is noticeably unlike any from other localities.
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.
Azurite-
stock #18.1-AX-24-298
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Municipio de Santa Cruz
Sonora, Mexico
3.8 x 2.8 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $450
Spring update

Undamaged, bright luster, intense deep blue and esthetic, a fine small miniature from Milpillas. The crystals on this piece show both classic sharp prismatic faces and the large curved faces that have a more satin luster. Recognized as one of the greatest mineral finds of all time, this mine produced many good specimens, so the prices have been relatively low for this sort of quality. Better in person and a great value for the most desirable "electric" color.
