An impressive, superb specimen of very lustrous blue azurite crystals with minor green malachite alteration from the now-famous Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Mexico. These azurites are now considered some of the world's best, and this exquisite specimen holds its own with the finest azurite specimens from any other worldwide locale, be in Tsumeb, Bisbee, or elsewhere. The crystals are in pristine condition, have excellent midnight-blue color, and are very sharp and well-defined. The oxide zone that produced all the fabulous Milipillas mine azurites is now mined-out, and these will soon be considered classics, just like Tsumeb azurites are today. Jeff Scovil photo.
