Gemmy Azurite and Malachite Specimen from Laos
Dimension: 7.4cm x 4.5cm x 1cm
Locality: Khanong open pit, Sepon Mine, Vilabouly District, Savannakhet Province, Laos
An extremely gemmy, sparkly and beautiful specimen of electric blue (with a hue of purple) Azurite crystals with velvety, green fibrous Malachite on the back of the piece and botryoidal Malachite on the display side. Azurite specimen from Laos are of the best quality in the world and supplies are very limited due to the remote location and inaccessibility of the mines. This is certainly an exquisite display piece, very colorful, heavily crystallized and in perfect condition.
Thanks to my daddy's long-term relationship with the suppliers in Asia and Laos, I am able to acquire the most beautiful and rarest pieces of all. The sparkles of gemmy Azurites are very difficult to show on the photos, my Azurites are always way more beautiful in person than photos.
