Azurite and Malachite from China

From the find of 2004. These AZURITE and MALACHITE association specimens made a huge splash on the world market recently. They immediately caught the attention of dealers and collectors alike for their amazing likeness reminiscent to specimens from the world famous, old, classic mining district of Bisbee, Arizona. Simply put, most knowledgeable mineral experts would attest to the fact that the best AZURITE and MALACHITE combination specimens are indeed those from Bisbee. Most mineral enthusiasts who have seen these specimens were simply awestruck by the fact that these Chinese pieces are virtually impossible to distinguish from the VERY characteristic specimens from Bisbee. For those of you who love these two minerals, but never had the chance to get a great one from Bisbee, here is your chance to get a "Bisbee-like" specimen. These are very nice specimens that undoubtedly match the quality and characteristics of the highly sought after and difficult to obtain specimens from Arizona.

Enjoy !!
