Azurite on Dickite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/m128a.jpg] Azurite on Dickite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/m128b.jpg] Azurite on Dickite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/m128c.jpg] Azurite on Dickite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/m128d.jpg] Azurite on Dickite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/m128e.jpg]

Gemmy, tabular Azurite crystals to 1.4cm that contrast well against a white Dickite coated matrix. This specimen is from what is known as the Chiclet Pocket, named for the size and shape of the crystals which can resemble Chiclet gum. The superb blue and transparency are evident when held under lighting (last photo is backlit). The strong color and contrast of specimens from this pocket make them coveted by collectors. Specimen comes mounted on a lucite stand.


M129 - Azurite with Malachite $ 2800 SOLD
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico
miniature - 5 x 3.5 x 2.8 cm


Azurite with Malachite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/m129a.jpg] Azurite with Malachite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/m129b.jpg] Azurite with Malachite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/m129c.jpg] Azurite with Malachite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/m129d.jpg]

Superb electric blue Azurite crystals on matrix. This is from the watercourse pocket (also called the elegant pocket or spiderweb pocket) that was opened in 2013 and is an uncommon style for the pocket in that it has the typical intergrown cluster of top quality crystals but is attached to a flat piece of matrix. The light colored matrix with green and black spots really sets off the blue of the Azurite. Although this was mined in 2013 it only made its way north of the border in late 2014 having been stashed away by a miner. Undamaged and superb, this one really has it.


M130 - Chalcocite, Azurite on Azurite after Malachite $ 2800 SOLD
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico
small cabinet - 5.5 x 5 x 4.5 cm

Unusual specimen composed of a clsuter of elongated crystals of Malachite after Azurite with Azurite and Chalcocite on the tips. This is a new find from late 2014 and there were only 8 specimens in the lot I saw, this one being the best of them by a good measure. The color of the Azurite is nothing short of spectacular, looking like irridescent blue paint. A highly unusual specimen and a must for a Milpillas collector.


M131 - Azurite on Dickite $ 2000 SOLD
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico
cabinet - 9.5 x 6 x 2.5 cm

Gemmy, tabular Azurite crystals to 1.4cm that contrast well against a white Dickite coated matrix. This specimen is from what is known as the Chiclet Pocket, named for the size and shape of the crystals which can resemble Chiclet gum. The superb blue and transparency are evident when held under lighting. The strong color and contrast of specimens from this pocket make them coveted by collectors. There is one broken off crystal towards the bottom of the specimen, otherwise undamaged.

This truely looks more like a Malachite after Tanzanite than what it is, such an unusal shape. The single 3.5cm tall crystal is visually striking against the white matrix. The chatoyancy of the velvety Malachite is wonderful with a uniform wave of light rolling up to the termination as you turn it in your hand. There is some Azurite around the base ofthe crystal. Unique.

Superb electric blue Azurite crystals forming a mound shaped grouping. This is from the watercourse pocket (also called the elegant pocket or spiderweb pocket) that was opened in 2013. Floater cluster with superb color and top, wet luster.

Large single Azurite crystal with Malachite and smaller attached Azurite crystals. Superb electric blue coloration and wet luster. The frontside has a couple rows of tiny Azurites attached, and the backside has a single larger Azurite coming out the face. This grew straight out from the pocket wall giving such beautiful 360 degree viewing. There is a natural notch along the top edge and there appears to be a little damage right in the notch. Otherwise this is perfect and even stands up on it's own.
