Azurite

JC9921.  Azurite.  Christiana mine, Kamariza mines, Agio Konstantinos, Lavrion district mines, Lavreotiki, East Attica, Attica, Greece.5 x 7 cm  79g.  $45.00.  Most of the azurite from the Christiana mine are small groups of brilliant blue crystals.  this is the 1st one I have run across with larger, coarse crystals.  Unusual for the locality.

JC9900.   Azurite, malachite.  Khanong open pit, Sepon mine, Vilabouly district, Savannakhet province, Laos.  5 x 9 cm  198g.  $100.00.   Sparkly crystals with good luster.   Minor malachite as seen.   Sepon mine azurites were few and far between at the Tucson show this year (2019).  Specimens with larger crystals are demanding astronomical prices now.

JC9758.  Azurite, malachite.   Milpillas mine, Cuitaca, Municipio de Cananea, Sonora, Mexico.  4 x 6.5 cm   60g.  $365.00.   A two centimeter main crystal with satellite crystals attached.   The back of the main crystals, not visible in this photo, were in contact with the pocket walls, so parts of the crystals are a bit flat.  These are the brilliant crystals with an almost Schiller like luster, where the original crystals were partly replaced by malachite and then a thin layer of azurite crystallized on the malachite, giving this incredible luster the Milpillas azurites are famous for.    The visible malachite is for the most part the thin layer of malachite that in the top half of the specimen is now azurite.
