Malachite and azurite are two copper carbonates that are minor ore minerals, with azurite being the blue mineral and malachite being the green. These two copper-based minerals are frequently found in copper mines, oxidized zones of copper ore deposits, or near mines of other copper-based minerals such turquoise and chrysocolla.
To say this specimen is spectacular would be an understatement. Everytime I look at it, there appears to be even more to appreciate about it. If you're a collector this beauty is a must to add to your collection. Its colors are so rich and come together to create a masterpiece. It almost reminds me of a painting with its eye catching blend of colors and texture.
