Azurite & Malachite on Matrix Wholesale Lot - 11 Specimens

This is a wholesale flat of small, natural azurite and malachite crystals on matrix from Morocco. You will receive 11 vibrant azurite and malachite clusters, all of which are pictured above. The specimens in this flat range from approximately 1.3" to 5" wide. Majority of these specimens display more azurite than malachite, however malachite can be found sporadically around most of the matrixes.


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.
