A beautiful plate of lustrous, midnight-blue azurite crystals from Mexico's Milpillas mine. The Milpillas mine, an underground copper mine located in northern Mexico in Sonora State, has become a household name in the mineral collecting world over the past decade as the source of what many collectors consider the world's finest azurite crystals. This is a great example with lustrous, midnight-blue crystals to ~2 cm completely covering a 9.5 cm wide plate. With the oxide zone now largely mined out, the flood of fine azurite specimens coming from Milpillas is now ending, and this is the time to add a fine example to your collection of you don't already have one!
