JC11608.   Azurite, malachite.   Liufengshan mine, Guichi district, Chizhou, Anhui, China.   10 x 16 cm  >1000g.  $450.00   A large cabinet specimen of the brilliant blue azurite from here.   The upper left shows two generations of azurite, the first layer the more brilliant blue, and the next layer on top of this one the more sparkly darker blue.   Malachite adds nice contrast.   The back side is also of interest, and could also make the display side.  It is composed of botryoidal malachite, with a bit of secondary malachite of light green crystals here and there.  Along the top edge are azurite crystals implanted on and next to the malachite botryoids for a bit of nice contrast.
