Description:These specimens are now classics from China, and just beautiful for what they are. A very attractive cabinet display specimen of Azurite on Malachite from the prolific Liufengshan Mine. It features wonderful, sparkling, lustrous, deep midnight blue Azurite "rosettes" which are elegantly set atop velvety forest green colored botryoidal Malachite. The largest Azurite "rosette" meaures 5 mm across, and nearly all of them are pristine, save a few small spots, but overall no damage. The color contrast is just beautiful and truly resembles classic material from Bisbee, Arizona. These specimens are certainly among the most celebrated contemporary Azurite specimens out there. Valued at $1,950 for quality, contrast and sheer visceral beauty.
