Description:An attractive specimen of Azurite with minor Malachite from the famous Milpillas Mine. This piece features fine quality, sharp, rather lustrous, deep blue, bladed crystals of Azurite measuring up to 1.3 cm with a minor dusting of mint green Malachite. With backlighting, you can see that the Azurite crystals actually show gemmy edges! Great quality overall, with only a few tiny imperfections that I could find with a loupe, and the vast majority of the Azurites are undamaged and the piece shows nicely from a few different directions. You can see how showy it is from the photos, and now we're told that the oxidized zone is finished, so there may not be any more of these specimens from Milpillas again. Valued at $650.
