7" Druzy Azurite Crystal Specimen (4 Lbs) - Morocco

 
This large specimen displays small aggregations of malachite that are associated with breathtaking blue, druzy azurite crystals. There are azurite and malachite crystals on both the exterior, and lining small cavities throughout the specimen.

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.
