Azurite

$349.30 $499

This Azurite and Malachite combination comes from Morocco. A vibrant combination of deep blues and greens makes this specimen exciting and lusturous. Azurite and Malachite are known to form in conjunction with each other, for their chemical makeup is very similar. In fact, the presence of more or less water in the location of formation, is enough to determine whether an abundance of malachite over azurite, or vise-versa, will accumulate.
These minerals tend to be found near copper deposits, which accounts for the colors the minerals display. This association of azurite and malachite on a copper-rich, iron oxide matrix was found near the M'Cissi, Alnif, Tinghir Province, Souss-Massa-Draâ Region, Morocco.
