JC9099.   Azurite, malachite.  Khanong open pit, Sepon mine, Vilabouly district, Savannakhet province, Laos.  3 x 4.5 cm  26g.  $125.00.   A nice miniature featuring a main crystal of the classic type from here.  The azurite was replaced by malachite and in turn coated with azurite, giving this great, vibrant, schiller like blue color.  There is a broken crystal in the front that shows the malachite rather clearly, and a crystal on the side that is both malachite and azurite. 
JC9099.  Slightly different angle.

JC9101   Azurite, malachite.  Khanong open pit, Sepon mine, Vilabouly district, Savannakhet province, Laos. 5 x 8.5 cm   261g.  $225.00.   Classic, bladed, thin crystals, featuring several crystals of the classic type from here.  The azurite was replaced by malachite and in turn coated with azurite. In this specimen the azurites appear to be altering back to malachite, or the azurite never completely covered the replaced crystals.   There is some damage along the top edge.   The crystals are darker than I prefer, and a tough specimen to photograph.
