Azurite/Malachite from the Tongshan Mines, Anhui Province, Guici County, China. A pretty piece with crystalline pockets of druzy azurite surrounded by a scalloping of malachite, some of which has a dark velvety dewy look and most of which has a pleasant lighter green color.The sparkle of the azurite druze is something that you just have to see with your own eye - the camera doesn't convey it well. Material from this locality has always been rather high priced, but we thought this piece held up in quality, while costing out well.
