Azurite with Cerussite, Arsentsumebite


Out of stock

Here we have a specimen that requires time with a loupe to fully appreciate the structure sand morphological nuances it brings. The face is dramatically covered with stubby prisms as well as interspersed tabular and tiny pseudo-rhombohedrons. Interspersed are cerussites as well as arsentsumebite and other unknown secondary coppers minerals. I wish I could handle micro photography better as certain areas have these glowing electric blue azurites being climbed by small cerussites and blebs of arsentsumebite. Did I mention that every azurite has that super electric color? Poster material for sure! Exceptional! Ex Piroska Magyar
