Sparkling, Drusy Azurite & Malachite Wholesale Lot -42 Pieces


This is a wholesale flat of vibrant, drusy azurite and malachite crystals on matrix from Morocco. There are 42 pieces in total ranging from 1.5" to 3" wide. This lot has a good mix of azurite and malachite on most of the pieces.

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.
