4.2" Druzy Azurite Crystals on Matrix - Morocco

This 4.2" wide specimen features a druze of azurite on matrix that was collected from Morocco. Small amounts of malachite can be found across the matrix as well.

Comes with an acrylic display stand.

Azurite and Malachite are known to form in union 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 copper rich, iron oxide matrix was found near M'Cissi, Alnif, Tinghir Province, Souss-Massa-Draâ Region, Morocco.
