Azurite

ID: 5876
Add to OrderNot checked

A spectacular group of very lustrous, deep blue azurite crystals with minor malachite. This pocket was 15 by 10 meters (but very narrow) and the specimens were attached to the wall by fibrous malachite, that’s why they resemble “floaters”. The mine owners cemented the pocket entrance with three trucks of concrete, but some had been collected prior to that and I was very lucky (being near the source) to have my pick of the best miniatures and TNS. Nothing of any significance has been found since the summer of 2013. As commonly seen with azurite, the photos do not  do the specimens justice.

A magnificent specimen of lustrous, deep blue crystals of azurite in parallel growth, with some matrix and minor malachite attached at the back. The crystals average between 6 and 7 cm and are perfectly terminated and in excellent condition. A major Tsumeb azurite acquired by Steve from Larry Conklin in 1994. The specimen was mined in May 1990.

Azurite with malachite

ID: 5892
Add to OrderNot checked

Very sharp, Tsumeb deep blue prisms of azurite to 3 cm scattered and in parallel growth, on a matrix that is sprinkled with malachite. Azurites (especially from Tsumeb), are rather difficult to photograph.  I assure you that the quality and luster of the crystals as well as the definition and condition of this specimen is exceptional.

Azurite with Malachite

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!
