Item Description

Scintillating azurite microcrystals line large striking vugs on both sides of this impressive, large sculptural two-sided matrix specimen from recent finds at this well-known Cu-Fe deposit. The sparkly azurites are midnight-blue to navy-blue in normal light, but GLOW with "electric-blue" gemminess under bright light! The malachite, azurite and gossan matrix are a fine contrast to the azurites. This is an outstanding and rich large two-sided specimen from the locale and compares well with classic Bisbee azurite. Valued at $1000-1250.
