A sculptural and aesthetic azurite and malachite specimen from the famous Morenci Mine of Arizona. Bright, azure-blue, bladed, botryoids of azurite, nicely accented by green malachite, are richly strewn on the boot or shoe-shaped gossan matrix. This excellent, probably older piece, looks good from both sides. Ex Daniel Trinchillo Sr. Collection and comes with a custom-made and labeled lucite base valued at $125 for the base alone.
