Product Description

For sale is a beautiful and large azurite and malachite, with malachite coating and  replacing  strands of copper wire, from Mineral Hill mine, NSW. This large specimen is very attractive, and a little hard to capture its true beauty in pictures. The azurite has top luster and the specimen is full with flashing crystal faces. There are a couple of small contact areas, really trivial. Overall this is in pristine condition! The real bonus is the copper wires replaced by and coated with malachite, while not unknown, this  malachite replacement of another  secondary mineral, copper is not often seen. Particularly as widespread and well displayed as on this specimen. This mine has now been closed since late last century. Overseas buyers PLEASE contact me for postage costs. Ex John Chapman, ex Paul Melville collection.
