Description

Very nice group of azurite crystals with an intense dark blue color and excellent luster accompanied by fibrous malachite with a silky luster.
This is a very nice specimen from this world famous Mexican mine.
Due to the intense shine of the crystals, I have not managed to make a better photo, the piece is much more beautiful in person than in the photo.
