Description

Apart from being a killer Greek azurite on matrix with superb quality in terms of crystal size, color and luster, this is a crazy combo piece that show a few minerals at their best from Greece. Fine pastel green agardite is present, in between beautiful crystal groups of green brochantite. Malachite crystals are also present. I have never seen this association again from anywhere in the world. From my personal collection.
