Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca ,Mun. de Santa Cruz, Sonora, Mexico
A simply brilliant, electric-blue azurite piece shows off sharp crystals and is from the Milpillas Mine of Mexico. The luster is nearly a mirror-like finish, and the decorating malachite adds a soft and velvety component. The malachite pseudomorphs after the azurite crystals, retaining their form while adding rich hues of green colors. The entire piece rests on a copper embedded matrix. Minor nicks are noted, but overall the piece is in good condition and displays well.
