Azurite with Chrysocolla pseudomorph after Malachite from Liufengshan Mine
Dimension: 5.4cm x 5.4cm x 3cm
Locality: Liufengshan Mine, Guichi District, Chizhou, Anhui, China
A cute little piece of art from the Liufengshan Mine of China, it looks like a funny cartoon monster with one eye, LOL! An eye-catching blue-green Chrysocolla emerged from the matrix of highly crystalized, deep royal blue colored Azurite crystals. The Azurite crystals are very sparkly and are slightly botryoidal. A "plateau" of botryoidal pastel green Malachite appeared on the corner of the display side, with tiny, spheres of heavily crystalized Azurite sprinkled in places, mesmerizing! The back of the specimen also exhibits a lot of details and colors, this is a well-balanced and unique display piece! A high quality acrylic display box is included in the price.

This is by far the most beautiful Azurite vein ever discovered at the Liufengshan Mine, we are not sure how many of these beautiful creatures could be found but I am acquiring as many as I could, the colors are insanely good and we have never seen something like this before. The good ones are very limited though, because of the harsh mining environment.
Liufengshan Mine is well-known for two types of Azurite – extremely crystallized Azurite of which the crystals are usually of a larger size and are thicker; Azurite with Chrysocolla and Malachite pseudomorph which shows a dazzling range of colors and a significantly bright blue Azurite.
