Gorgeous Azurite specimen with Chrysocolla and Malachite from the Liufengshan Mine, Anhui, China. The bright sky blue Chrysocolla forms a sharp, eye-catching color contrast with the deep royal blue Azurite crystals. Grown on a slightly botryoidal matrix, the Azurite crystals are very sparkly. The underside of the piece exhibits Malachite intergrown, outstanding!
