Item Description

An amazingly colorful and sculptural azurite and malachite plate from near this extinct New Mexico open pit copper mine. The striking myriad of pretty blue layered azurite nodules look like surreal mushroom caps from Alice in Wonderland or exotic blue Cambrian Period (541 to 485 MYA) algal mounds! They rest on contrasting thin banded malachite substrate on the sandstone matrix plate. A showy and very fine combination example of the species and locale. These came out about 10 years and there weren't that many. The piece has multiple fine display views.
