Azurite with Malachite

ID: 6101
Add to OrderNot checked

Back in 2013, I was fortunate enough to be around when the “floaters” pocket (the one that was cemented shut late 2013) was being offered and I got to look at about 400 specimens from that pocket. In my opinion this was one of the top 10 pieces there. Most of the specimens had microscopic blemishes, but some had the electric color, superb luster and minor malachite. This is one of those with the color, luster and the form. Choice!

Galena with Pyrite “Stalactite”

ID: 6089

A slightly curved, perfect stalactite of galena sprinkled with golden pyrite. The surface of the specimen does have some crude tiny galena crystal faces and I suspect there might also be some tennantite on the core of the piece. Very unusual and special.
