Item Description

A sculptural azurite and malachite specimen from recent finds at the Liu Feng Shan Mine of China. Scattered around the boot or shoe-shaped piece are very interesting aureoles of azurite surrounding the malachite. The malachite on the back of the boot has an unusual, columnar, bubbly look.
