HOLD Azurite with Malachite
stock #HOLD ALEC-3-124
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Municipio de Santa Cruz
6.6 x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
An excellent electric blue Azurite from the modern classic locale of Milpillas. No damage, great esthetics and contrast with the matrix. Crystals reach 2.6 CM and are well placed. Some zones of the Azurites show alteration to silky Malachite which adds additional color flash. This mine has produced many fine pieces, but as the opertions are now finished with the Azurite bearing zone, these are already appreciating quickly.
