Azurite with Malachite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/m141a.jpg] Azurite with Malachite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/m141b.jpg] Azurite with Malachite from Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Sonora, Mexico [db_pics/pics/m141c.jpg]

Superb electric blue Azurite crystals with a few stringers of Malachite on one side. This is from the watercourse pocket (also called the elegant pocket or spiderweb pocket) that was opened in 2013. Nearly a floater cluster (there is contacting on a few of the bottom of a few of the lower crystals) composed of intergrown crystals to 1.9cm in size. 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.

Superb electric blue Azurite crystals with a minor amount of Malachite. This is from the watercourse pocket (also called the elegant pocket or spiderweb pocket) that was opened in 2013.
