#10 / MALACHITE after Azurite - Mexico


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.
