Collector's Piece: Azurite with Malachite from Liufengshan Mine
Dimension: 8.2cm x 6.4cm x 3.7cm
Locality: Liufengshan Mine, Guichi District, Chizhou, Anhui, China
A highly crystalized Azurite specimen from the Liufengshan Mine, Anhui, China. This masterpiece exhibits dazzling sparkles like a piece of high end jewelry! The crust composed of very attractive, spherical aggregates of sparkling Azurite in a deep royal blue color. The sparkly, sugary look, and the ball-shaped clusters interlinked to form into an unusual Azurite vug and make this stand out dramatically from Azurites of other locales.
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.
Price inclusive of a high quality display stand as pictured, made of pure copper and acrylic.
