GO to Mexico Gallery - Page 3
Locality: Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Cananea Dist., Sonora, Mexico
Size:  6.5 x 4 x 4 cm
These came to market around 2009 but disappeared a few years later after the great
Azurite  finds.  This one was mined in 2010 and sports quite large pseudomorphs to
over an inch long. These grew in tight seans and they show the brilliant satin structure
of the malachite along the perifery where they separated from the seam walls.
