This azurite and malachite specimen from the now-famous Milpillas mine in northern Mexico comes from a very special pocket found at the mine a number of years ago which produced what many consider to be the finest azurite and malachite specimens from this world-class locale. Featuring very lustrous, sharp midnight-blue azurite crystals perched on a contrasting matrix of bright green fibrous malachite, this specimen is outstandingly aesthetic, and surely ranks in the top 1% of specimens ever found at this highly productive locality. illustrated in Mineralogical Record Midwest, pg. 164 and Mineralogical Record Vol. 42, pg 264.
