Dimension: 10cm x 7.4cm x 3.5cm
Locality: Liufengshan Mine, Guichi District, Chizhou, Anhui, China
A breathtaking large cabinet Azurite specimen with Chrysocolla and Malachite from the Liufengshan Mine, Anhui, China. This gorgeous piece exhibits dazzling array of colors - deep royal blue, sky blue and pastel green. The Chrysocolla crystals grown on the side have a rare botryoidal crystal habit, contrasting nicely against the highly crystalized deep royal blue Azurite, memerizing! The gemmy Azurite sparkles like stars in the sky, so pretty! Comes with a high quality copper-wired display stand.
Excavated fom the most beautiful 2020 Azurite vein ever discovered in the Liufengshan Mine of China, sadly the vein has already been exhausted. The quality and colors of the Azurite mined from this vein are insanely good and we have never seen something like this before. The good ones are very limited, luckily because of our well-maintained relationships with the miners, I have secured the best pieces of all.
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.
